Adult Stem Cells Win Again And Death Before Burkas

And there is some more bad news for the industry of infanticide and its main supporter, the Democratic Party. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts have successfully repair damaged mouse hearts with stem cells, but not embryonic stem cells, rather adult stem cells.

That's right. Adult stem cells. Adult stem cell research is the only branch of stem cell research that has actually been beneficial to any patients. Embryonic stem cells have done nothing but caused cancer in the test rats that had been injected with them. Adult stem cells have actually been used to cure patients in the real world.

That is why news like this is so big. And since it doesn't involve embryonic stem cells which means doing abortions and killing unborn children, Old Media is not going to cover this with any kind of interest.

From NatureNews:

Researchers have managed to restore heart function by transplanting [adult] muscle stem cells into damaged mouse hearts. Their results suggest that the technique could one day be used to heal heart tissue in humans.


To test whether connexin 43 was indeed the key factor, the [sic] team tried using adult muscle stem cells that had been forced to express the protein. This produced similarly good results. “If you make these cells express connexin 43, they correct or reverse the vulnerability to arrhythmia,” says Kotlikoff. This could liberate future researchers from relying on embryonic tissue, which can be more difficult to acquire.

Cells Mend Damaged Mouse Hearts

And here is something that uber-leftist organizations like the National organization of Women have been silent on: the treatment of women in the Islamic world. Kyle-Anne Shiver has something to say about that. From the American Thinker:

Anyone who thinks I’ve spent the last 40 years of my life learning how to properly apply makeup and avoid bad-hair days, only to end up donning that hideous black thing at the command of some foreign guy with a severe case of Male-Chauvinist-Pig syndrome, is in for a fight.

Give me death before burkas!

Before the current high-tech, news-around-the-world-in-the-blink-of-an-eye age, I doubt many Americans would even know how the proverbial other half of the planet lives; but now we do. We can read about it every day, 24/7. We have pictures, videos yet. Even in some of the most repressive regimes on earth, some brave soul with a laptop, internet access and a cell phone/camera/camcorder manages to get the word out, and blast it around the globe instantaneously.

And in my opinion, the ultimate oppression of our age, no matter how one cares to cut it, slice it, dice it, whatever, is hands-down the subjugation of females – from birth to the grave – in places ruled by this cockamamie Sharia law. Liberals may be scared to call a spade a spade, but I’m not.

Man! This woman is a pistol!
