Stem Cells and Sophistry


P.J. O’Rourke is on fire today at the Weekly Standard, taking the President to task for the reasons he gave for allowing federal funds for embryonic stem cell research.

Update: Both Ed Morrissey at Hot Air and the Anchoress have good takes on P.J. O’Rourke’s column.

One Response to Stem Cells and Sophistry

  1. Donna V. says:

    O’Rourke’s argument is one to value because it doesn’t rely on theology. Of course, we base our beliefs on the teachings of the Church, but that cuts no ice whatsoever with progressive pro-aborts. I’ve argued (in vain) with pro-abortion liberals that a secular case can be made against abortion and embryonic stem cell research and O’Rourke is the man to do it.

    O’Rourke has cancer, and yet he doesn’t mention it once in the article. O’Rourke might have been a wild man in his youth, but he is not one who thinks it’s OK if others die if it might prolong his life by a few years.
