I’ll give my reaction to last night’s vice presidential debate tomorrow.
But today, it’s about John Kerry’s remarks Monday that the Bush administration’s opposition to expanding stem cell research beyond the lines already available is due to extreme right-wing ideology.
Let me tell you who is extreme.
It is people like John Kerry and his liberal colleagues in the congress who won’t halt the gruesome procedure known as partial birth abortion.
The real extremists are those who won’t limit in any way the number of abortions, performed mostly for the sake of convenience: more than 40 million of them since 1973.
Some of them might have been democratic voters, so just for political reasons the liberal democrats should be against the killing of possible new constituents.
Most of these babies would have grown up to pay taxes, another source of income for free-spending democrats and some republicans.
As for stem cells, it is never right to do wrong to do right.
Growing babies to steal their stem cells is evil piled upon evil. But John Kerry doesn’t seem to care.
