Stem Cells Development: Prepare Yourself for the GOP Spin Machine

I guarantee you'll see/hear folks saying, "See, we don't need fetal stem cells at all!"

Just one little quibble that will be missed by the NewsMax crowd, those who only read headlines, or the simply dishonest: these cells have twice the number of chromosomes of an normal human cell. By all means, keep searching, but this doesn't constitute an argument against using fetal stem cells of already-aborted fetuses (just a few dozen more lines thereof, actually) for the sake of potentially curing real, live human beings of many diseases.

And, as predicted, when I forced myself to watch ABC's evening news, the chromosomal issue was, of course, not noted.

Guess it didn't jive with Disney, huh?
