Newt doesn’t want to give up on embryonic stem cell research, yet, although the front running private research company, Geron has done so. It would be nice if he and the rest of the candidates could commit to cease wasting public funds on unethical research which has consistently failed to produce results.
The candidate probably does not want to get into the issue of the morning after pills and the birth control pills, and he’s willing to display ignorance of developmental biology in order to avoid this. Gingrich might be afraid of losing the birth control pill users by acknowledging that the life of a sexually reproducing organism begins when it really does.
He was also able to suspend logic, accept the fraud of global warming, and sit down with Nancy Pelosi in a warm and fuzzy Environmentalist Whacko ad.
The entire government could start by acknowledging reality.
Rather than being mis-branded as “contraceptives” the various hormonal B.C. products should be called ‘birth control drugs’, and carry the tag “This product has multiple mechanisms of action, and might (or is likely to) operate by stopping the life of an early human embryo.”
