Yes, Nancy Pelosi is a State Representative.
She is not a doctor or a scientist.
And yes, Nancy Pelosi is wrong!
In her comments to Nancy Reagan this week on the occasion of the unveiling of a Ronald Reagan statue in the Capitol, the Speaker of the House attempted to say something poignant. And then she opened her mouth—and said something irresponsible and stupid:
“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.”
No, Ms Pelosi, stem cell research has not saved any lives nor has it found any cures. It has given hope to some, but in general, it is not all you tout it to be. Quite the opposite, it is much more likely that stem cell research and specifically embryonic stem cell research has cost lives. With the Left’s agenda regarding abortion rights and stem cell research, it is open season on embryos—life—for the sake of hope.
Afraid of his mortality for lack of hope beyond it, man fumbles for and grasps at anything that offers a longer life. It could be a fountain of youth or the Holy Grail, or it could be a miracle cure. In this case, it is the life of an unborn child sacrificed on the altar of man’s arrogance. For this, Nancy Pelosis thanks Nancy Reagan—a woman who still sees and talks to her deceased husband.
