    getting in other peoples business to impose your own worldviews, however, is free.

    depends, can we fall back to Margaret Sanger quotes from the 1920s also taken out of context, and add Hitler in there for good measure?

    Apparently those helpful video editing folks were going to show you a video demonstrating that PP is into getting more black people abortions with their questions about sickle cell research that would have been edited out later, just showing that black people baby parts are way cooler than white people baby parts.

    They left that part out, looks like videos aren't the only thing they are selectively editing.

    Well God classified a fetus as less than a person so I guess I am kinda like god?
    I've read the Bible cover to cover twice. It's bullshit.
    As far as the "nature of the issue" its not "often a grotesque and barbaric procedure" unless you get your information from places designed to generate false emotions, in which case you are just getting what you ask for,
    "When does someone become a person" is a philosophical question, not a medical question. And everyone will have a different answer. But there is only one side of this argument that thinks they need to push their answer on everyone else based on really nothing at all.
    I read your attempt at telling me about my compromised ethics but I really could not understand a single word of it, sorry.

    Charlotte Allen, a writer in Washington, is the author, most recently, of The Human Christ
    TN05s source, not exactly in it for the science or the math.
     
    http://www.amazon.com/The-HUMAN-CHRIST-SEARCH-HISTORICAL/dp/0684827255
    While the book might be helpful to some readers as an introduction to the quest for the historical Jesus, its superficial scholarship makes this a less than worthwhile contribution to the historical Jesus conversation.

    WHAT IS FETAL TISSUE USED FOR?
    Tissue from elective abortions and miscarriages is used for a wide variety of purposes. Scientists who want to regenerate organs and tissues may use it to learn how the human body makes them in the first place. Others look for defects in early development that can cause disease or miscarriage, or study normal development, which can guide therapeutic strategies. The tissue is also used to learn how medicines or toxins affect a fetus.
    IS USING FETAL TISSUE A NEW IDEA?
    Hardly. Scientists have worked with it since the 1930s. The 1954 Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded for work with fetal tissue that led to developing a vaccine against polio. The National Institutes of Health spent $76 million on human fetal tissue research in fiscal 2014.
    WHAT DISEASES ARE BEING STUDIED TODAY?
    AIDS and muscular dystrophy, for example. Some experimental treatments for spinal cord injury and macular degeneration involve transplanting fetal cells into patients. And European researchers recently began a study of putting fetal tissue into patients' brains to treat Parkinson's disease, a strategy that has had mixed results in the past.
    HOW IS THE TISSUE PROVIDED?
    It comes from hospitals and abortion clinics. Sometimes it goes directly to researchers, and in other cases it is handled by nonprofit organizations or companies that supply researchers. The groups or companies can be reimbursed for expenses associated with costs like processing and storing the tissue, federal law says.
    DOES THE WOMAN HAVE TO AGREE TO USING THE TISSUE FOR RESEARCH?
    Yes, she has to give consent. And the matter can't be raised until after she has decided to have an abortion.
    CAN'T RESEARCHERS JUST USE STEM CELLS INSTEAD?
    Stem cells, including those obtained with adult donors, can develop into a variety of tissues in the lab. The European researchers in the Parkinson's study and others hope to learn enough to use them someday for transplant tissue. Experts say stem cells have already substituted for fetal tissue for some purposes, but that scientists still need fetal tissue to learn basic information about how organs form, or help them simulate certain diseases in the test tube.

    Hey I came up with one of those spiffy God billboards, like the one designed to guilt you into going to church instead of tailgating:
     
    Do as I say, (well not really because I never said anything about abortion, though I did give a fetus a much lesser value than people that are born in the Bible) not as I do - God
