Here I go again! Another political rant!

I just can't help myself...I heard an ad on the radio this morning that really made me angry!

The ad stated that John McCain doesn't support stem cell research. Once again, this is another example of the left twisting his position. The correct statement is that he does not support EMBRYONIC stem cell research and there is a HUGE difference! Stem cells can be harvested from many places-cord blood, amniotic fluid, adult fat and skin cells just to name a few! The best part of these types of stem cells is that they can be obtained without ending a life.

Of course, they had the mother of a child with type I diabetes saying how wrong it was to not support this research. This topic is one that really sets me off. My nephew also has type I diabetes. He will tell you that he does not want babies destroyed to cure his diabetes. There is promising research in the areas of amniotic fluid and adult stem cell research, and McCain supports these wholeheartedly!

I just wanted to set the record straight on this one!

This is one reason why I don't pay any attention to political crap. The president, despite his views, what he believes or does not believe in....NEVER makes any final decisions on his own. Everything goes through all other sources of government and changes will not necessarily be made by him. I know he is supposed to be our leader and whatnot, but I just don't get all into it all because of that and many other reasons. Sometimes those promises and beliefs fall by the way side after they enter office anyway.

I hear ya lady, it drives me crazy. Only the "crazy Catholics" ever realize there IS a difference!!

Corrine, there are many of us who are not Catholic who know the difference.
