IVF on NBC (And Not That 'Dateline' Crap)
|On this weekend's edition of "Meet the Press" Tim Russert questioned White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten on the obvious hypocrisy of the Bush administration's policy on stem cell research. |
Salon has the relevant part of the transcript here.
Russert even goes into the issue of embryos created for in vitro fertilization which I discussed earlier.
It is nice to see the IVF aspect of the stem cell issue receive such exposure. The danger (probably unlikely) is that some people may turn against IVF in the same way they oppose stem cell research. That would be a shame considering how many people the procedure helps have children. Hopefully, people will realize that the administration's position is inconsistent and driven by politics, not science or the public interest.
