Iowa True Blue: Congressman Nussle: On Stem Cell Research, He's Right For Bush, But Wrong For Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Iowa True Blue
With Michael J. Fox coming to Iowa on behalf of Chet Culver, this is a good time to to remind folks about Congressman Nussle's extreme, right wing position on a critical issue. Congressman Nussle supports banning all embryonic stem cell research. His stance is simply indefensible. ... Let's be clear. Fertility clinics dispose of tens of thousands of embryos every year. Unless you want to outlaw and ban fertility clinics (the logical extension of Congressman Nussle's extreme views?), these embryos will continue to be discarded. If they are to be discarded, and again they will be as long as fertility clinics exist, why not use them for good, use them for research?
