Why It Isn't Just The "Lady Justice Statue" That's Blindfolded

The liberal media is just faint with breathless overexcitement today, oh, my: Human embryonic stem cells heal the hearts of rats.

Big freakin' whoop.

Four years ago, this was already done, with human hearts, and by adult stem cells (ASCs):
Four out of a group of five seriously ill Brazilian heart-failure patients no longer needed a heart transplant after being treated with their own stem cells.
That study, published in Circulation Journal in 2003, reported regenerated damaged heart tissue from ASCs gleaned from patients' own bone marrow. ["Transendocardial, autologous bone marrow cell transplantation for severe, chronic ischemic heart failure." Perin EC, Dohmann HF, Borojevic R, et al. Circulation 2003 May 13;107(18):e9040-2]

Of that finding, Dr. Michael Rosen of Columbia University said, "This is the first approach where you have an opportunity to actually heal a heart."

(Ahem) The FIRST. Didn't see that plastered across the major media then, did we?

(Ahem Two) That's COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, of NEW YORK CITY, the IVY LEAGUE university.

One real adult stem cell heart success not enough? How about 16 additional ones published in 18 respected medical journals including Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Journal Thoracic Cardiovascular Surgery, Circulation, Stem Cells and The Lancet?

Heck, the European Society of Cardiology even has concluded that
Cardiac stem cells (CSC) are indeed able to proliferate giving rise to other stem cells (property named self-renewal); they can differentiate into all the cells composing the cardiac tissue.
More and more, we Americans are being fed slop by not only the media but the medicos.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
