Jill Stanek notes the numerous deceptions in a Barack Obama campaign ad which attempts to defend him from criticism on his Born Alive votes. An additional deception would be the claim about McCain running on a platform to ban abortion in cases of rape and incest.
This is hilarious but unfortunately not surprising story. People in favor of killing human embryos for stem cells pay a college professor an inordinate amount of money to write a pathetic study based on admittedly “arbitrary” estimates. The Detroit Free Press writes two stories on the study without actually examining the study or putting the paper before an unbiased source. A Political science professor at Michigan State easily notices the paper’s flaws.
Meanwhile, James Thomson’s companies are shifting to focus their work on non-embryonic stem cells. HT: Wesley Smith
