STEM CELL RESEARCH: CALIFORNIA'S PROPOSITION 71 INITIATIVE

IrishLaw provides her customary, well-thought insights in this post on California's Proposition 71 initiative to fund stem cell research, "including embryonic stem cells." In what the writer calls "the failure of journalism" (i.e., the MSM) to cover this story comprehensively, she expresses concerns that such failures are not only giving many disease-afflicted people false hope of near-term medical cures, but the very superficiality of the reporting skates both the potential medical risks, as well as the broader, compelling ethical questions for experiments conducted on cells that are really "early-stage human lives." It's an important read and do make sure to read the links within the post.
