I am starting to wish Missouri’s Amendment 2 didn’t pass. It looks clear that stem-cell opponents are bound and determined to keep cutting-edge science out of Missouri.
If there is one thing that history can tell us about scientific advancements, it’s that science will prevail and religious zealots will fall into obscurity. Only a few hundred years ago, it was heresy to speak of dissecting a human body. Renaissance anatomists fled their homes to London, Copenhagen and Amsterdam to make groundbreaking discoveries in medicine.
Whether it is California, Japan, China or in European countries, advancements will be made and diseases cured. Missourians have the choice to keep cutting-edge science here at home, or outsource it like everything else.
Disappointed science teacher,
