"I made it very clear to the Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayers' money to promote science which destroys life in order to save life is - I'm against that. And therefore, if the bill does that, I will veto it.''
--George W. Bush

"These so-called ‘guidelines’ for destructive human embryonic stem cell research try to put a good face on an unethical line of research. They attempt to frame the issue as ‘how to conduct ethical research,’ but the guidelines entirely miss the point: We should not be destroying young human lives for the benefit of others."
--Sam Brownback

"Nothing is more heart-wrenching than to see those little 'snowflakes' brought into a hearing room"
--Tom DeLay

"A fertilized egg is a little boy or a little girl"
--Rick Santorum

[there is] "little way to stop us from going down the path of creating laboratory body farms."
--Gordon Smith

"It's fearmongering of the worst kind because there is no such evidence whatsoever that embryonic stem cells have a thing to do with regenerating the spinal cord, zilch, zero, nada. There is no research whatsoever on this. Scientists will tell you this. There is no research that indicates stem cells have any possibility right now where Alzheimer's is concerned..."
--Rush Limbaugh

Update: oops, as a reader has pointed out, I did not properly identify the source of the medical instruments depicted. They can be found at "collect medical antiques". There you'll find explanations to these and other medical antiques. Apolgies for the oversight.
