The precious start of life of a white born again Christian suburbanite Fox News viewer GOP voter. Oops, sorry, that's a purple sea urchin embryo.
Don't implant that one, Doctor Frist!
If you get me started on the whole embryo thang, I'm gonna hafta smack.
A little background: Blue Gal her own self has been through the infertility rollercoaster. I'm one of the lucky ones.
I did not have to go through IVF, so there are no little Blue Gal embryos waiting for my decision to dispose of them. It would be heartwrenching, but I hope if that were the case I would have the moral and emotional strength to donate them for stem cell research, just as if one of my sisters or parents needed a kidney, I would have the strength to donate that, too.
I repeat: I am a former infertility patient. I know.
Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS)? Kiss my ass.
There are difficult decisions to be made in infertility, and they do not need to be made in the halls of Congress. They need to be made between a couple and their doctor, and when you try to tell a group of highly educated (and when you've followed your own reproductive cycle for 24 months IN A ROW believe me you are educated) people who have invested THOUSANDS of dollars and TENS OF THOUSANDS of tears in order to have any child at all...how and when they "should" proceed so that "precious life" is perserved.
Fuck you. Just fuck you. YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA, SIR. NONE AT ALL.
Great articles on what's really going on here and here.
BTW my opinion is everyone agreeing to create an embryo shall sign a waiver that if your embryo has sat on ice for over 2 years and no one can find you those stem cells can help an Alzheimer's patient. Starting right now.
