I'm NOT going to interfere in the discussion between Boltz and Elly. I see I no longer need to (but I still sort of will
) express concern on the wonderful uses of stem cells being forbidden for foolish moral standards of those who have no more than disputed faith in personhood to claim their disagreement with. Thank you Boltzmann.
I have another say about the matter though. Something that bugged me with matters concering a certain (former) vegetable of a human being as well: Our use of resources.
Stem Cells are harvested from undeveloped, consciousless, already disintegrating
, already lifeless would
-organisms which have little to no functionality available (they were on complete
life support (womb) for crying out loud) in their previous state, that serve no other purpose in this world, other than being a waste of space, a waste of time to fight about, and ready to be disposed of. People with nation-wide responsibilities who consider this (or are used for) an item of utmost importance to fight against, are throwing away valuable time and money that might be used for something more useful, like living beings that are
in development and in need of attention.
Over-emotional dribble on a subject that is on the same level as feeling concerned about how to dispose a heap of squashed insect-eggs.
Perhaps not entirely, but the meaningless-factor of the subject is as excruciating, for the sole reason that those would-be organisms are going to be disposed of anyway (be it by us, or 'nature') while there are more pressing matters to be concerned about which would benefit from allowing such research. This process can easily be categorized as a SETBACK, upon denial of the bill. Stab us in the back, will you?
Yes, what fine topics to use our resources for, or rather, against. This
sort of thing is all what several major ruling beliefs are good for: spoiling oppurtunities. I hope it won't this time, but who am I kidding. :lol:
Anyways, it's all about what people value. Whoever thinks a human life in terms of cellular structure and finanual expenses won't ever appreciate or treasure human life as the opposite people do.
Food for thought : 1. If you were in a situation where your child/wife/husband/close one....life is endangered , can you really accept that it's for the sake of others? Easy to say yes now, harder to do that while experiencing it.
2. It's very easy for someone to say that they want someone to take their life if they are in a "hopeless" medical condition. Yet, when that person faces death/knows his time is near , he/she will fight for his life.
Fear we shalth not know nor feel...:evil:
Such extraordinary wisdom! I nominate thee, Elly's worst post evAR, for the knowledge thy does think to possess.
Not to mention how irrelevant the content to the subject is..
