MH - Show Me the Money

Amy nails it with this story about Missouri Governor Matt Blunt (R), who finds himself at odds with his pro-life constituency over his support of embryonic stem-cell research. The reason for his support? Could be that the governor, who is also “pro-business,” “does not believe destruction of the embryo is taking a life, allowing him to support the influential business interests linked to the push for embryonic stem cell research at Washington University, St. Louis, and the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, Kansas City.”

I’m curious: Is his belief that destroying the embryo is not taking a life based on philosophical, religious, or economic grounds?

Regardless, this illustrates what I’ve been saying about Corporate America for so long – the bottom line is making a buck, and there are very, very few ethical or moral considerations that can measure up to that. As Amy says, follow the money…
