NARAL a Dry Eye in the House

In the world of science, there is a bit of potentially fantastic news that will actually upset some people heading into what is supposed to be a time of thanks.

For NARAL and other abortion promoters, “stem cell research” is similar to “carbon credits.” Al Gore, who personally spews more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than those he points a chubby finger at but who wants us to believe he’s “giving something back” tenfold as a result of his selfish gluttony, leans on carbon credits.

“Pro-choice” activists have a similar crutch allowing them to proclaim a humanitarian upside to killing babies in the womb: stem cell research. In other words, abortion isn’t so bad, as it goes a long way toward research that might help Michael J. Fox resume a normal acting career, or the paralyzed to walk again — so we’re expected to appreciate this reasoning.

But that shallow justification for abortion might be off the table soon:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two separate teams of researchers announced on Tuesday they had transformed ordinary skin cells into batches of cells that look and act like embryonic stem cells — but without using cloning technology and without making embryos.

Their breakthroughs could make possible the long-sought goal of tailor-made medicine, but without the political, scientific and ethical roadblock of using human embryos.

This could be bad news for NARAL — right up there with Jesse Jackson hearing that the poverty rate is dropping or Hillary Clinton discovering the Botox factory has been purchased by Newt Gingrich.

Before too long, the only option to get everybody on the “pro choice” bandwagon and convince us all that abortion helps save lives will be to join forces with the global warming crowd and to start pushing “green” abortions.
