I was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and am now undergoing the standard chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
In discussing this dreadful disease with my doctors, the consensus of opinion in the medical community is that the eventual breakthrough will come from the manipulation of the body’s cells. Studies currently being done include embryonic stem-cell research.
Then I hear the worlds of people like George Bush and Mike Huckabee, proudly announcing how they would to all they can to block embryonic stem-cell research. While that may be their personal, religious opinion and I respect that course for them, how dare they impose their narrow viewpoint on millions of people like me and others who suffer from a variety of diseases and disabilities?
What arrogance, what selfishness to deny possible and potential relief to so many, just because that’s how they personally believe.
