Praying for stem cells

Mr. Poon, whose blog I found via Ernie the Attornery (nee Ernselor the Counselor), writes about Friday’s airing of 20/20:

Anyone watching 20/20 right now? They have a heartwarming story about a “bubble boy” who gets a stem cell transplant to be able to have a better-functioning immune system. While showing scenes of the baby finally going home from the hospital, the reporter gives us a voice-over question: “So were prayers answered, or was it science?” Lady, let me explain something: A lot of the people out there who thinks this was prayers being answered want to make sure that stem cell transplants don’t happen.

Well, maybe it was a coincidence that God happened to listen to the prayers for the kid who got the stem cell transplant.

Yeah, sure. If this is as Mr. Poon reports it, 20/20 ought to be ashamed for itself for such lousy journalism.

  3. Stem cells are just another step towards a new type of repairative medicine. Kind of like the Hulk had. One day you may just apply a small drop of liquid to regenerate a deep wound in a matter of days.
