Bush's Incoherence on Stem Cell Research

The intellectual and moral incoherence of George W. Bush's position opposing federally funded embryonic stem cell research is a topic that many have written about, including Matt Yglesias, the DLC, and myself. But in a new posting on the New Republic site, Michelle Cottle adds another count to the indictment: the insight that the in vitro fertilization process that Bush and his fellow stem cell research demonizers stubbornly refuse to address is an element of the downside of the "culture of life" they claim to be defending. People who desparately want to be parents are the ones generating all those excess embryos without which we wouldn't be having this debate. Check it out.
