Liberal Apoplexy

As I write this, I am reading a leading story in the Shepherd Express, a popular newspaper that can be picked up for free at local Milwaukee cafes like Alterra. The paper is notoriously liberal and unabashedly so. The story I am referring to reads as follows:
Republicans Could Ban Stem Cell Research In Wisconsin

More than 60 Republican legislators have signed on to a bill that would ban stem cell research in the state. Supported by extremist anti-abortion group Pro-Life Wisconsin, the bill would criminalize the sale or use of tissue from a fetus that had been aborted.

The bill doesn't stop there.

The bill is so vaguely worded that it could ban and criminalize embryonic stem cell research in the state...

And so the rest of the article goes. You know, I think most sane people would find the sale of human tissue absolutely abhorrent. It is remarkable that liberals, who claim to be the most stalwart defenders of the rights and freedom of the individual against any external idea of a universally applicable code of ethics, turn a blind eye to those individuals who have been aborted, all in the name of the greatest good for the greatest number.

The ripples of the 2010 election continue to register.
