Bush gives life as the reason for not supporting stem cell research, but this kind of collateral damage is acceptable. Loss of life is okay, killing children is okay, if it’s in support of his agenda. (Never mind that the stem cell studies proposed would not lead to loss of life.)
I remember going uptown a couple of weeks after 9/11, when the site of the Trade Center was literally still on fire, and they were bringing out bodies and body parts. But people uptown were walking around like nothing happened. They were dressed up, laughing, eating lunch. It just felt bizarre and wrong and I felt like we were not even members of same species.
I mean, what the fuck.
People in Lebanon must be feeling something similar.
