Yesterday in my interview with Wilson Smith, I mentioned people should not give up hope in the legislative process because there will always be courageous lawmakers. Idealistic words one could easily sweep away with a wave of post-modern cynicism. Then, you read about David Adelman (D-Decatur).
Earlier this session he showed he is one of the few true leaders is solving Atlanta's balkinazation problem.
Now, he is reintroducing his stem-cell bill that was quashed last year. The bill would simply allow people to donate excess embryos created during fertility treatment to the research facilities at the Medical College of Georgia. Without this type of system, the embryos would be discarded. Now, before the pro-life crazies jump all over me, go back and re-read three words. Would. Be. Discarded.
So the choice is very simple. Toss them in the garbage or store them where in the future they can be used to potentially cure deadly diseases. Seems an easy choice if you are one of those who claim to care so much about the sanctity of life.
