Michael J. Fox states in his McKaskill for Missouri ad, "Senator Talent even wanted to criminalize the science that gives us a chance for hope."
MSM should ask Fox to explain what that science is, but it won't and he won't.
For the record, it's human cloning.
Michael might be Canadian, but his statement can be conscued in a way that makes it factual.
Americans like me (who have Parkinson's). Not Americans like me (who is also an American).
The Nazis had legal scientific research that gave humanity a chance of hope.Posted by: Tony at October 28, 2006 12:34 PM
I stand corrected, Michael became a naturalized American citizen in 2001.
The problem with a cure is a troubling one, because people rarely ask about 'cure' for what? Is he wishing to be 'cured' to be just like everyone else? Maybe he is seeking a cure to become 'more human'? ... it's as if having Parkinson's (or ANY difficulty) robs us of humanity.
Maybe a re-think, an embracing of our frailty is needed. Are we all to be Superman ... or just part of a 'super-race'?
