On Alan Keyes, embryonic stem cells, and the danger of Planned Parenthood
By Matt Abbott
Former ambassador and current senatorial candidate Alan Keyes is already making waves here in Illinois. I love it! But I do feel sorry for Keyes in this regard: He isn't much liked by a large segment of the African-American community, which, because of years of indoctrination by liberal civil-rights activists, considers him an "Uncle Tom" and a "puppet to white people."
To his credit, Keyes seems to be taking it all in stride. He won't let such vociferous criticism stifle his unconditionally pro-life, pro-family message. And there are few who can articulate that message as well as Keyes.
Keyes' opponent, Democrat Barack Obama, is an intelligent and sincere man. But his support for abortion and homosexual unions should (of course, it doesn't) disqualify him from serving in public office. Ditto for any like-minded individual.
Stem cell controversy
Frank Joseph, MD, an ardent pro-lifer, has written to ABC's Primetime about its extolment of embryonic stem cell research in a recent episode.
The following is a portion of Dr. Joseph's e-mail letter to ABC:
"I am appalled that on last week's Primetime, in which you had the young girl with diabetes, all the talk was about President Bush and his rejection of stem cell research.
"You made no mention of adult stem cells, which are taken from a person's own body. [Thus] no human being has to be killed; and because [the stem cells] are taken from the person's own body, it eliminates the process of tissue rejection....
"Adult stem cells have already been curing many diseases. Embryonic stem cells have not cured anything yet. As a matter of fact, embryonic stem cells have caused tumors in mice, and researchers say that if embryonic stem cells do live up to their potential, it is at least 15 years away. And I must emphasize,'if.'
"Why didn't 'Primetime' inform the public about the great advances in adult stem cell research?
"It is obvious that you are putting politics above the health of Americans - and you are trying to make President Bush look like a cold-hearted person...."
A note from New Zealand
In a previous column, I referred to Planned Parenthood as "arguably the world's most sinister organization next to Al-Qaeda."
A reader from New Zealand, Sean Reynolds, recently sent me the following e-mail:
"...Personally, I think that Planned Parenthood is a far more dangerous organization than Al Qaeda: No prizes for guessing which one has killed more Americans - or even Arabs, for that matter.
"Keep up the good fight! At least in your country abortion is still an issue that gets debated. I'm praying for my country of Aotearoa, New Zealand to wake up too!
"God bless you, God bless America, and God defend New Zealand."
