Radio Clown Mark Levin Calls Embryonic Stem Cell Research A "Hoax" Perpetuated By Liberals, Fertilization Clinics
Radio clown Mark Levin claimed on last night's radio rant that embryonic stem cell research is a "hoax."
Levin said that the "hoax" was being perpetuated by liberals and promoted by the liberal media, apparently doing the bidding of fertilization clinics, which he claimed want to be in the business of selling embryos.
It's hard to believe even Levin's loyal listeners would believe such fact-challenged ideas.
In truth, it's Levin who is creating the hoax, doing the bidding of a tiny minority of Americans. While Levin called the issue "divisive" to the nation, a new study shows that the vast majority of Americans -- including about 66% of Republicans -- believe in the promise of embryonic stem cell research. While Levin claims that embryonic stem cell research is a "hoax," scientists and doctors universally disagree.
Levin, who isn't a doctor, went on to claim that liberals are ignoring the promise of other reserach, regarding adult stem cells and the use of viruses. That's simply not true.
You won't find liberals suggesting this is a debate of embryonic stem cell research vs. every other research. You will find liberals -- and moderates and even a majority of conservatives -- who believe that scientists should proceed with all avenues in the pursuit of cures for such things as Parkinson's Disease, Lou Gehrig's Disease, Juvenile Diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease, among others.
In truth, it's Levin who is being "divisive," loioking for anything that can demonize liberals, and make an American majority feel like the fringe left, on the eve of the mid-term elections.
