Many foolish statements have been made over the past several days. What is curious is that the statements are being made by or about Catholics who have an obvious affection for misrepresentations, deceptions and assorted flagrant flirtations with all things consistently offensive to Christ and His Church. For example, the infamous Catholic Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, recently remarked to Nancy Reagan upon the unveiling of a statue of the late president, Ronald Reagan, “Your support for stem cell research has made a significant difference in the lives of many American people. It has saved lives. It has found cures. It has given hope to people.” But as the facts will expose to anyone with the ability to read, human embryonic stem cell research has produced not a single positive result. The only success in the field has come about because of the work being done with non-embryonic stem cells.
