This Just In... From Stem Cell National Headquarters... *typewriter noises*

Gee, they're actually being adults. Well, sort of. You'll see what I mean.

WASHINGTON - Ignoring President Bush's veto threat, the House plunged into the dispute over stem cell research Tuesday, debating a bill that supporters said could accelerate cures for diseases but opponents viewed as akin to abortion.

Now that's what I like to hear.

"This is the right stem cell bill," said Majority Leader Tom DeLay. He urged members to reject the other bill, which he said would force taxpayers to finance "the dismemberment of living, distinct human beings."

What, like the FUCKING IRAQ WAR???

Gee, I made it three paragraphs into this study before my head exploded.

(Bush said) "This bill would take us across a critical ethical line by creating new incentives for the ongoing destruction of emerging human life," he said during a ceremony with children who had been "adopted" as frozen embryos. "Crossing this line would be a great mistake."

Yeah, surround yourself with kids. You fucking coward. I'm amazed he didn't work the word "freedom" in there somewhere.

Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, a doctor of obstetrics, played the sound of a fetal heartbeat over the House speaker system, declaring, "This is what it's all about, folks."

You disgust me.


Whoops, more brain all over the wall. Tsk.

"Being pro-life also means fighting for policies that will eliminate pain and suffering," said Rep. James R. Langevin, D-R.I., who was paralyzed at 16 in a gun accident.

Thank you. That's something the Republican Radicals always seem to forget. As George Carlin said: "If you're pre-born, you're fine. If you're pre-school, you're fucked!"

Go read the rest. I'm going to sit here and bang my head against the wall for a few hours.

(Oh cross-post, you came and you gave without taking..)
