It was simple and painless. Never thought I would be thanking Senator Hatch. Life is full of many surprises. http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif

I lived in Utah in the past. I never liked Sen. Hatch and I am both surprised and pleased at his stance on theraputic cloning.
I am actually going to Salt Lake City next week because my kids have spring break. I will be sure to have my family and friends there contact Sen. Hatch with this message too. As his constituents, their input will carry weight.
Thanks Debbie, and thanks Steven!

Cheese, this is the one issue that the old die hard conservative spousal unit can't figure out when it comes to the republicans. If they are for less government than why are they trying to make laws against stem cell use, research, therapeutic cloning, etc. I mean they all come under the preamble's exhortation "to promote the general welfare". And no where does our constitution say when life begins. Closest it ever got was counting slaves as 3/5ths of a person for districting purposes not voting rights. If congress really wants to fix this they can outlaw all in vitro fertilization procedures.

My thinking goes something like this:
An embryo used to be considered what was created after the fertilization of an egg cell by sperm. Now some people are trying to broaden the definition to include an egg cell that is stimulated to divide. In the future, those people will probably try to broaden the definition to be just an egg cell.
Now a rhetorical question: Are women murderers because they menstruate?
