Biology FAIL

Filed under: embryonic stem cells — benotafraid @ 3:04 pm

This really needs to be posted to the FAIL blog. In a spectacular display of arrogance and ignorance, former President Clinton talked to CNN’s (and former, thank God, Surgeon General pick) Dr. Sanjay Gupta about the Obama Administration reversal of the ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. Naturally the discussion turned to the ethics of using embryos. Perhaps you weren’t aware that the embryos to be used are in no way “fertilized” or otherwise capable of becoming human babies. No, really!! So, see, it’s all good.

FAIL. Big Biology FAIL.

Read President Clinton’s remarks here and go ahead, you know you want to . . . send your entry over to FAIL blog. Hat tip to Matthew Warner, where you can view CNN video clip.

  2. Remember, folks: supposedly WE’RE the ones who don’t understand science. On the other side, we have people arguing that these embryos “aren’t fertilized,” which sounds like a “what error is this person making” exercise in a middle-school bio textbook.
