Who cares about life or family anyway?

Who are the ones who don't care about life or family? From what I have learned in the writing of my book, the misinformation campaign has been the tactic of those who oppose blastocystic (embryonic) stem cell research because they equate an un-implanted microscopic blastocyst, which consists of about 32 undifferentiated cells, with a living human being, e.g. a child or adult.
Although it would appear self-evident that we are not talking about murdering babies, since babies can only form in the womb, this is what some people would have the public believe.

Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), which uses an unfertilized egg, human or otherwise, and one's own DNA might be helpful in learning the etiology of diseases like Parkinson's. However, those patients must wait until a woman gives birth to retrieve her amniotic or cord blood cells simply because people who favor POTENTIAL life over ACTUAL life are doing everything they can to prevent a treatment or cure from being found using blastocyst stem cells. These are the ones who really do not care about the human family or people who are suffering. These people are powerful enough to outlaw SCNT in Missouri.

In my opinion, most people who claim to be "pro-life" are really pro-POTENTIAL life. Many times this same group is pro-war and pro-death penalty. Go figure!

It's very interesting that this argument is used (who don't care about life or family), since it's also used by people who are against giving women the right to choose whether they have control of their bodies (the choice to have an abortion or not), and by homophobic people in anti-gay messages. It seems overused and tired--something that perhaps they're grasping at.
