He's given to pontificating on matters both theological and scientific but, he understands neither.
After his comments on when life begins, a number of Catholic Bishops pointed out that Biden is mistaken-not only from a religious view, but from a common sense understanding of basic human biology as well.
As Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin pointed out,
"Biology, not faith, not philosophy, not any kind of theology - Biology tells us, science [says], that at the moment of conception there exists a unique individual of the human species."
Now Biden shows his lack of scientific knowledge while campaigning in Missouri ,
“I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents” who face “the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect.Well, guess what folks? If you care about it, why don’t you support stem-cell research?”
First of all.......the pro life factions are not against stem cell research. We are against embryonic stem cell research (ESCR). We are against the destruction of human life. ESCR destroys embryos. The are many more types of stem cells which can be used without harming a living, human being.
To date, no approved medical treatments have been derived from embryonic stem cell research. Adult stem cells and cord blood stems cells have thus far been the only stem cells used to successfully treat any diseases. We have absolutely no evidence that a cure for Down Syndrome can be found utilizing ESCR.
Rather than comment on things he does not understand,maybe Biden should limit his comments to issues such as
