Eu explico: Às sextas-feiras, ao fim do dia, é dia de receber o interessantíssimo boletim electrónico do físico da Universidade de Maryland Robert Park (autor de "Ciência ou Vodu", Bizâncio, 2002). É uma pena afiada contra a anti-ciência, isto é, pela ciência. Quem quiser pode ver e assinar os boletins dele aqui . Enquanto não chegam as novas de hoje, releia-se uma da semana passada:
WHAT’S NEW Robert L. Park Friday, 22 Jun 07 Washington, DC
STEM CELLS: BUSH DECLARES "ALL HUMAN LIFE IS SACRED."
Peace activists say the same thing. The President said this while issuing his second-annual summer-solstice-veto of legislation to lift his ban on embryonic stem cell research. He said that the United States is "founded on the principle that all human life is sacred" – unless you’re in Iraq, where 80 American lives have been sacrificed so far this month. I couldn’t find such a principle in the Constitution; instead I found the First Amendment. By imposing his bizarre religious belief that embryonic stem cells are people on the rest of us, the President has violated the constitutional rights of every living, breathing American.
THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND.
Opinions are the author's and not necessarily shared by the University of Maryland, but they should be.
