    I found this amusing.

    Source: Real Time with Bill Maher

    This one goes out to all the conservative women out there. New Rule: If you are so sure the embryos needed for stem cell research are precious human life that can't be destroyed, then implant one in your uterus and bring it to term.

    That's right. Put your cervix where your mouth is. Now, right now in America, there are thousands of stem cells sitting in fertility clinics that are not allowed to be used for research, will be destroyed after a year or two, and could be right now implanted in a lady's hoo-hoo - to make a screaming, mewling infant that would, ironically, make you sorry you were ever born.

    Now here's how far back along the chain of life stem cells are. They're called stem cells because they haven't even decided what kind of cells they're going to be. So it's very close to declaring that life begins when you're just thinking about ****ing somebody. Which is just about how most right wing prudes like George Bush would like it. The last people in Washington this obsessed with preserving sperm were Monica Lewinsky and her dry cleaner. This is, after all, an administration that absolutely hates Planned Parenthood. But then again, judging by Iraq, they hate planned anything.

    Did you know that our president spent the entire month before 9/11 on his ranch working on the stem cell issue, trying, as he said, "to bridge the worlds of ethics and science." Seriously, could there be anything George Bush knows less about than ethics and science?

    Okay, it comes down to this. Here's something that may be life. A tiny speck of sub-atomic goo. Here's something that is life: Michael J. Fox. One is invisible to the naked eye. The other was in "Back to the Future." With research properly funded, scientists believe we could do everything from curing Parkinson's to regenerating spinal cord tissue in Democrats.

    So, ladies of the far right, what do you say? There are thousands of extra embryos sitting around in fertility clinic freezers all over America right now just waiting for a good home. There's no obligation and no salesman will call. So, ladies, if you're not going to finish those eggs, come on, go ahead, knock yourself up!

    lb505, are you a "*******"? We adopted our daughter in Kansas through the foster system with open records. Our daughter will never wonder about her birthfamily, as we have regular contact with sibs and other family.
    Exterminate!

    ...from birthfamily now. We do phone calls with sibs, an aunt, and occasional cousins. If/when my daughter wants to make contact with birthmom when she is an adult, that is her decision. Right now I don't permit it due to birth mom's continued instability.

    You can only tell a child so much of the story when they are young. I will never lie to her, but I won't lay it all on the line immediately. Plus I am sure my daughter has enough memories and is smart enough to figure out some of the worst of it herself.

    Daughter is doing relatively well considering everything that has happened. When she isn't driving me crazy (like any kid her age!) she is the light of my life.
    Exterminate!

    Just a kick for the recent stem cell veto.
