I am all for scientific study. Banning any kind of scientific experamentation only weakens the world as a whole. I can see the arguement against harvesting them from aborted fetuses, but that seems like a fringe issue to the whole ball of wax. And I am probably more anti-abortion than pro.

I think the big issue here is really that you're right. Abortion is entirely a fringe issue to stem-cell research, THe connection that is being drawn is artificial and its being done to strengthen the position of the pro-lifers. If its wrong to do embryonic research because it "kills babies," then isn't it wrong to kill babies for personal reasons too?

I'm not trying to paint pro-lifers as manipulative. Or well, I am but no more so than pro-choicers. If the shoe were on the other foot and abortion were illegal and stem cell research legal, I am quite certain that the powerbrokers of the pro-choice movement would make the argument that "if its ok, to harvest frozen embryos for science, why can't we harvest implanted ones."

basically, people suck. all of them.
