Therapeutic cloning for embryonic stem cell research passes Australian Parliament

A dark day for Australia.

The decreasing respect for human life is getting scarier and scarier. People don't see the big picture: this is called "sliding down that slippery slope". It used to be appalling to consider destructive experimentation on human beings. The cloning crowd has just found a way to get around this: they will create human beings that people cannot relate to, because they do not look like human beings yet. But pretending doesn't change facts. They are human beings. They have 43 chromosomes. They are alive. And passing this bill is a catastrophe, because the slip down that slope will not stop there.
