News Flash: Bush Made the Right Decision After All!

on Wednesday, November 21, 2007

For years now, critics of President Bush have hounded him for his decision to block the use and destruction of infant embryos in government-funded stem cell research. They argue that he alone has single-handedly stopped progress toward medical science that would allow us to create organs, cure disease, and reverse paralysis. Many have hated him for this decision.

Turns out he was right after all.

Since scientists could not use government funds to use embryos in stem cell research, they were forced to find an alternate path in their research -- and now it sounds like they found it.

Thanks to Bush's stick-to-it-iveness, researchers in Wisconsin and Japan have found a way to create stem cells from your own body using nothing more than skin cells. One of the greatest things about the discovery is that tissues or organs grown from the stem cells could be transplanted into the person who actually donated the skin cells and not be rejected. There are still kinks to work out, but thanks to Bush, killing baby embryos is no longer necessary.

This news has been flying under the radar for some time now, nice to hear that the MSM has finally started to catch on.
