Maybe our readers…

… can remember better than the WaPo. A new scientific study is out that shows how researchers can rapidly create non-embryonic based stem cells from skin cells. Maybe all those in the country who condemned President Bush’s stance on embryonic stem cell research should take a pause and think about their stance now. Let’s see, research that destroys a potential life or wait a short amount of time and get equally promising results from SKIN cells.

“With each new study it becomes more and more implausible to claim that scientists must rely on destruction of human embryos to achieve rapid progress in regenerative medicine,” said Richard M. Doerflinger of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

No where in the WaPo article did it mention the outrage over the maligned (and usually misrepresented) position of the Bush administration with regards to embryonic stem cell research.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
