Tiberi sinks to a whole new low.

I'm really, really angry, but I will state the facts as calmly as possible.

Today, in 2006, our nation is debating the ethics of embryonic stem-cell research. For those who believe that life begins at conception, part of the argument depends somewhat on whether or not eventual loss of viability after years of being frozen is inherently ethically superior to potential life-saving research being actively conducted on these embryos. We continue to argue over the proper ethical standards.

In 1982, there were no standards. Potentially anything went. A conversation began. According to the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops, this is what ensued:

A legislative debate gathered momentum in the United States over federal standards on fetal experimentation which allow unethical experiments in certain circumstances. Tighter standards were approved by Congress after long debate, then invalidated when President Reagan vetoed the bill which included these standards as amendments.

According to Pat Tiberi, this is what ensued:


You tell me who has crossed moral and ethical lines. Pat Tiberi does not deserve this job.
