$3 Billion Body-Parts-For-Stars Contest

Maybe I'm a little slow to recharge my batteries, but Brad (arm)Pitts' automatonic leap into California's $3 billion embryonic stem cell research giveaway contest jogged my wiring just enough for some lights to come on.

It now makes perfect sense to me the Left is so hell-bent on foisting this fraud on the voters: They want to liver forever. Here. On this planet. God forbid.

Religious and spiritual people believe in life after death, or Nirvana, or perhaps reincarnation, or at least something. But whatever the particular particulars, they do not believe that death is the end. Therefore, they neither need nor desire to live forever in their mortal bodies.

Non-religious people, with which the Left is rife, do not have the luxury of any kind of life-after-death. Therefore the fabulously exaggerated promises--or even hints of promises--suggested by some scientists, journalists, politicians and celebrities, that stem cell research will result in advances in longevity or even corporeal immortality, are the only straw that these poor godless people can grasp.

In other words, if you don't believe in God, all you've got left is cloning. I say cloning because a stem cell won't do you any good unless is has your DNA, so embryos will need to be cloned using your DNA in order to produce stem cells that are useful to you. The legalization of embryonic stem cell research is just the first step to legalizing the cloning of humans for body parts.

Does that sound fantastic? Well, think about this, then:

30 years ago when the Supreme Court ruled on Roe vs. Wade, most people assumed that abortion would be rare, occur early in the pregnancy, and only be used in extreme circumstances. Today, 1.3 million abortions are performed each year, and 97% of them are merely for convenience. Today, a woman can have an abortion for any reason up until the time of birth. Today, it's no big deal to kill your baby, in fact, many women are pressured into doing it by family, friends and the mistaken belief that they aren't up to the task fo rearing a child (you know, like women have been doing for the last 150,000 years. Ok, perhaps 10,000 years depending on your religious beliefs--but it's still a long time).

So, with that precedent, what's so far fetched about stem-cell research being the first step toward human cloning?

And, as usual, the rich elitists want the taxpayers to pay for it! Why doesn't Brad Pitt plunk down a few hundred million of his own money?

But, then again, what's so bad about cloning a baby for body parts? After all, isn't keeping Brad Pitt young-looking worth it?
