My idea gets air time on the "Laura Ingraham Show"

I was able to get on Laura Show's today while she was interviewing Sam Harris a Neuroscience PhD. candidate at UCLA and author of "The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason." Natalie Angier reviewer of the The New York Times stated "The End of Faith articulates the dangers and absurdities of organized religion so fiercely and so fearlessly that I felt relieved as I read it, vindicated, almost personally understood. Sam Harris presents major religious systems like Judaism, Christianity and Islam as forms of socially sanctioned lunacy, their fundamental tenets and rituals irrational, archaic and, important when it comes to matters of humanity's long-term survival, mutually incompatible. A doctoral candidate in neuroscience at the University of California, Los Angeles, Harris writes what a sizable number of us think, but few are willing to say in contemporary America.'
Anyway they were discussing Embryonic Stem Cell research and Laura argued that Proposition 71 would create EMBRYO FACTORIES in California with our tax dollars. Laura then invited me on to debate Harris and argue my position that embryonic stem cell research was the equivalent of having your home looted at night while your sleeping and subsequently being murdered after the thieves have stolen everything... Mr. Harris responded that the "Murder of an Embryo was not the moral equivalent to murdering a completely developed human being." What was interesting was that on national radio this Neuroscientist conceded that destroying an embryo was indeed murder. Laura picked up on this remark and said "so you agree that destroying embryos is murder." Harris said, "I will concede that indeed it is murder but not the same as murdering a fully developed human being" I then remarked that we ultimately are nothing more than a collection of living cells and given his acknowledgment he somehow didn't understand the nature of human life. He is acting as an arbitrator of life, deciding who gets to live and who gets to be sacrificed. I said that given his position he would approve of Hitler's extermination of millions of retarded people and those that suffer from other disabilities during WW ll. At this point Laura completely undermined this author's primary argument. It was very satisfying to get a UCLA Neuroscientist to admit to the truth that "life begins at conception."
Well it was wonderful to get my looting analogy out to the public and undermine a
published author on this important issue! I hope all agree and remember all of you that are Catholics about John Kerry's position on this subject and those in California remember to Vote no on Proposition 71!
For certainly war has been declared on the Unborn children as proven by the new 3 dimensional ultrasound technology used in Medicine!
Take care, Francis
