Reflections on medicine and biology among other things

Thursday, May 12, 2005


Mitt Romney, govenor of Massachusetts, wants to be president, so he is trying to impress religious conservatives by opposing stem cell research:

Mr. Romney, a Republican, wants the largely Democratic legislature to adopt a definition that says that life begins at fertilization.

"To change the definition of when life begins is a very significant moral and ethical change," Mr. Romney said. "They can accomplish all the stem cell research they wish to without making that change."

I don't seem to remeber Romney running for election as a social conservative (and I was living in Boston when he was elected). For more of my thougths on stem cell research see here.
