Wide Stance: Outright Ban on Embryonic Stem Cell Research

The 2008 Republican party platform advocates banning "all embryonic stem-cell research, public or private."

Note those key words: all, public, and private.

So: under the GOP's way of thinking, such as it is, there is a strong right to life that overrides all other considerations. It begins when you're conceived and ends promptly after you're born.

Neat.
