    What's So Bad?

    I really don't understand people who don't support stem cell research. Probably because they're the ones shouting the loudest for cures, and yet they won't let the scientists find a cure. If people didn't kick up such a stink about stem cell research, just imagine what kinds...

    If I Ever Am In Need of It I Know It Will Be There

    I do support stem cell research, mainly because if I were ever to be in need of the services stem cell research can provide I would love for it to have been researched enough to be of some use to me.

    Check Out the Vid I Posted In This Group

    My man Sam Harris lays out a clear argument on why the debate over stem cell research is absurd and morally indefensible. There are other examples of why there should be no debate over this, but this short 4 minute vid sums it up nicely.

    Possibilities Are Endless
