Reagan v Reagan.

“The media should keep in mind that we are also members of the Reagan family, and my father, as I do, opposed the creation of human embryos for the sole purpose of using their stem cells as possible medical cures,” said Michael Reagan.

Michael Reagan said embryonic stem-cell research could not have saved his father from the ordeal of Alzheimer’s disease.

“This is junk science at its worst,” he said.

Ron Reagan’s speech last night was full of promise, but they were empty promises.

“He is basically saying vote for Kerry and there will be stem-cell research,” said Mike Reagan. “What I am saying is that there is already stem-cell research taking place. The media would have you believe – and my brother would have you believe – that stem-cell research is not going on. But it is.”

Ron Reagan told the 20,000 people assembled at the convention that stem-cell research may lead to the “greatest medical breakthrough in our or in any lifetime.”

In 2001, President Bush limited the use of federal funds for embryonic stem cell research, citing moral and ethical concerns about performing experiments with fertilized human embryos. Proponents of such research insist those restrictions interfere with efforts to develop new treatments for a variety of diseases, including Alzheimer’s, which slowly killed the former president.

However, adult stem-cell treatments have actually shown far more potential in treating dread diseases. Preliminary research involving embryonic stem-cell research has been associated with the development of tumors.

So the Democrats are politicizing science, and junk science at that, to try to come up with a reason for their faithful to vote against Bush. Pathetic.
