Who believes for a minute that, had Amendment 2 failed in Missouri by 1 percent or 2 percent of the vote, the Sowers Institute for Medical Research and its minions at The Star would go silently into the night, never to be heard from again?
Of course they would have returned with another effort to provide legitimacy to their embryonic stem-cell research effort. The Star would have had no problem, regardless of the wishes of the voters, providing more misleading propaganda in support of such an effort.
Human cloning is integral to embryonic stem-cell research. Amendment 2 is flawed, since it does not in reality prohibit human cloning. This is all about profit and greed, not lifesaving cures.
The pro-life movement lost a battle, but thanks to the efforts of state Sen. Matt Bartle and Rep. Jim Lembke, the war will go on to bring and end to this intrinsically evil research.
