I've written on the wonderfully horrible Rock For Life group before, but I wanted to share another delightful tid-bit with you. Check out what they have to say about March of Dimes.
I personally love how they drag embryonic research back into the argument. Honestly, when you're fighting for the "right to life" an embryo has, is it really that important what happens AFTER you lose said fight?
Normally I would rant about this for a few paragraphs, but honestly, I can't do it on this. The simple fact that people's religious beliefs are now impacting scientific advancement in SAVING LIVES is stunning. It's sad and it's scary, too.
Notice, that they also mention how sinister that, "MOD gave $19,000 to Dr. John F. S. Crocker of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, to study congenital kidney abnormalities." Is that such a travesty? What would have happened if the Polio vaccine had somehow gone against their religious dogma? Would we still be suffering from it? What about the stem cell research that goes into developing new skin for burn victims? Should we tell the little girl in the hospital with 70% of her bodies mutilated, "Sorry, it would be a sin to help you."?
Just trying to wrap my head around the idea that they want to STOP. HELPING. PEOPLE. is so fucking disturbing.
