Isn’t It Ironic, Don’t You Think?

One of the most ironic statements about the Terri Schiavo case can be found in one of Judge Greer’s opinions:

Perhaps one of the few  agreements between these experts is that stem cell research is currently at the experimental stage and is years away from being accepted either medically or politically. It would not appear from the testimony that this is a viable treatment option at this time.

Too bad.  If only the "pro-life" people who want Terri to live would allow stem cell research so that she COULD live, they might have a better argument.

Meanwhile, Tom at Corrante is far more blunt:

If these folks really cared about life, they wouldn’t have all so blithely signed on to this disaster in Iraq that has probably already killed more than 100,000 people, including more than 1,500 American soldiers.
