Please don't cloak your religious motivations in science

Like this. If you think embryonic stem cell research is immoral, fine. She does say she believes it to be unethical, to her credit. Appealing to the success of certain research areas in order to argue for the curtailment of research in other areas is simply absurd. Science works best when it can pursue all the avenues available. Embryonic stem cell research is a promising research area according to, well, seems like everyone. If you don’t want it to happen, you’re slowing the progress of science. This isn’t to say that scientific research shouldn’t be limited by ethical concerns. It should be. Arguing that such limits don’t slow scientific advance, however, is ridiculous.
