Just Asking

We have previously discussed The Intersection of the Despicable and the Silly: The fact that I am afflicted with Alzheimer's disease does not make me an authority on the morality of stem cell research.

Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, has made an advertisement on behalf of political candidates who favor such research. There are those who think it's a tad over the top. It's available HERE. He's entitled to his opinion, of course, but to no particularly increased moral weight because of his misfortune.

Kathy Shaidle, the thinking man's Ann Coulter, asks:
What if there was a chance that experimenting on, say, Parkinson's patients might lead to a cure of something else...?
Oh, my.
