I hope this is the right sub-forum. Here’s my question.
In Missouri, there’s a proposed amendment that would make it a right to clone human embryos for the purpose of finding cures to diseases.
I’m against it, but am thinking about abstaining from voting either way on this ballot item. Here’s why:
If I vote “NO” on Amendment 2, and it passes anyway, and in 10 years there’s some cure available that would cure my daughter’s illness - I feel that it would be hypocritical to take advantage of the cure while I voted against the science in the beginning.
I had heard there were similar questions raised before about using vaccines that were produced from aborted fetuses. I’m not familiar with the discussion of that subject.
