CNN has reported that on her first day back on the campaign trail after disclosing she had bone cancer, Elizabeth Edwards promoted human embryo experimentation. Speaking at a Cleveland fundraiser, she said:

“I think that we’re foolhardy to not be engaging in federal funding of stem-cell research in the most aggressive way we possibly can”….
“If people think that you’re throwing babies out, dissecting children, to do stem-cell research, I’m not for that,” [she] said….

Edwards noted that stem-cell work uses blastocysts containing clumps of 16 or 32 cells that were collected by fertility clinics but are no longer needed and would otherwise be thrown away….

Edwards’ statement was wrong on a critical point, that the only human embryos being experimented upon are fertility clinic leftovers….
It was also bizarre of Edwards to say she opposed “dissecting children,” although I guess it’s a plus.

Yet, of all people they should revere the sanctity of life more than most. They lost a son at age 16 in a car accident. Following that, Elizabeth underwent fertility treatments to give birth at the age of 48 and 50.
Now Elizabeth has incurable bone cancer. Bone. Bone is where blood cells are made. Bone marrow is just another term for a certain type of adult stem cells….
