Focus on the cluster of questions around stem cell research and cloning for a moment. One group of “dedicated and committed researchers” considers the human embryo a ball of cells and nothing more. Because it is undeveloped and would not survive out of the womb, any research is permissible, including the new proposals. The medical benefits, remote as they may be, wholly justify the action.

The National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 keeps children that aren’t yet 12 years old from getting organ transplants. Sarah Murnaghan suffers from cystic fibrosis and, without a lung transplant, she could die within weeks.
But it began unraveling quickly and got out of hand. I was very tired from my lack of sleep the night before. Mia was very tired but couldn’t settle down to go to sleep. She cried and whined a lot. Cage was very tired but refused to take a nap.
