I'm a C4/5 Quad 11years post this May 24th from a hockey injury. I struggle with my life daily enduring much pain (physical) and lack of dignity not
to mention the life limitations. It all comes down to "Quality of life" and although I'm sure President Bush has absolutly no clue what my life is
like I have to say I'm a fortunate one, I can live with my family.
Over the past 5 years it has indeed been few and far inbetween on any "good news" in the "hope for a cure" for paralysis. The loss of a major
focus point (Christopher Reeves) was bad enough. This mornings news of the S.K. Scientists breakthrough was completely unexpected by myself and was a
great source of hope to myself.
Unfortunetly President Bush only took mere hours to dash those hopes again, and for what? I ask how can a man be fit to run this great country and
shape the future of the world, if he cannot understand the differance between "right to life" issues and medical cloning of a persons own cells to
repair, replace, or heal. This threatens no life, but a culture of the patients own cells.
I'm just utterly distgusted, I only hope nobody close to this President has to endurer anything like myself or the peers I have met in my life of
Edit for PS
BTW, Ityped this message with a stick that I bite down on with my teeth, just to give a little insight.
