From Ryan Corsaro at CBS News, Democrat vice presidential nominee Joe Biden gives us one more reason not to vote for him and the most liberal senator in congress.
“I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy, because there’s joy to it as well, the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect. Well guess what folks? If you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?”
Well guess what, Joe? Most people I know do support stem cell research. We support adult stem cell research, the kind that doesn’t destroy human life.
Biden is certainly engaging in the common misdirection liberals employ on this issue: call it “stem cell research” when what they want support for is embryonic stem cell research–you know, the kind that destroys human life?
He is also almost certainly referring offhandedly to Governor Sarah Palin’s son Trig who has Down syndrome, and her statement to work for families who have children with special needs.
In making this statement, Biden has gaffed yet again. He has illustrated that he has little use for children born with Down syndrome, and little use for defenseless human life altogether.
People who only value other people for what they can do for them should not be trusted at the helm of the nation.
