On the Eve of the Veto
I'd like to say thanks again to Mr. Bush. You're making the right call.
You're absolutely right. The trash is the best place for the massive surplus of human embryos. Why all the hype in possible cures for juvenile diabetes, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's anyway? Seems a bit much.
I say, don't mess with success. We've been tossing hundreds of thousands of embryos in the garbage since the late 70s. Why stop now? Embryos are flushed down sink drains at in-vitro fertilization clinics while still alive. Others are incinerated while still alive. Other clinics decide it's best to expose the embryos to the air and let them just die over a four-day period. I say leave 'em be. It's a winning strategy.
Anything else would be, well, unethical.
