Trump right on abortion issue President Trump did the right thing when he ordered the end of federally funded research that uses the remains of aborted babies. Regardless of what side you consider yourself on on the abortion issue, the idea of experimenting on aborted babies is gruesome. This barbaric practice uses the purchased baby body parts which have dollar amounts attached to them — so much for a liver, so much for a lung, a brain, etc. They are all priced differently based on how long they have been in the mother’s womb. Hence, the older the baby at the time of the abortion, the greater the price that can be demanded for the particular body part. Those who are screaming “foul” and accusing President Trump of ignoring science are themselves ignoring the fact that, despite all the money researchers keep throwing at fetal stem-cell research, it has not produced a single clinical treatment for any disease or resulted in a single cure, Adult stem cells, on the other hand, are now used to treat routinely a host of diseases and conditions such as many forms of cancer, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, juvenile arthritis, acute heart damage, corneal regeneration, and many others. The Trump administration announced that $20 million had already been put into ethical research which will continue to find disease treatments and cures in a way that does not violate the dignity of the human person.

That fact that this woman still believes the discredited canard of selling fetal body parts is sad. I do hope that if she is ever ill, she will refuse all treatment discovered via fetal tissue or stem cell research.

And she should be glad she probably won't get polio because of her vaccine. As election year nears we're going to see more of this load of...you know

Such obsession with fetal tissue while conveniently blind to the fate of actual children.
