Is the Left Trying to Stop Medical Research?
If the Left succeeds in nationalizing medical care, it will probably shut down private medical research. There is a strong possibility that the Left might also try to shut down public funds for alternatives to abortion. After all, abortion will look horrible after it becomes obsolete.
This might seem completely paranoid, until we consider Dawn Eden's encounter with James Watson:
This is a truly odd attitude for a researcher. Apparently, it's much better to keep killing defective unborn children in the name of good health than to find other ways of ensuring healthy babies.
I was introduced to the gaunt, aged legend by another scientist, who proceeded to tell Watson about his biomedicals company, which funded work in the genetics field.
Watson interrupted him: "Is your company geared towards research or service?"
The scientist paused for a second, taking in the unusual question. "Research," he answered.
"That's the problem with these companies today!" the Nobel laureate erupted. "Everyone's doing research in genetics and nobody's doing service. Because it's too controversial"—he sneered—"to help mothers so that they can give birth to healthy babies."
