Obama Aborts Bioconservative Ethics Panel
In March, 10 out of 18 panel members, sent a letter to Obama objecting to his loosening of restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. A report from the panel — critical of his decision — was believed to be forthcoming
Leonard Kass, a prominent critic of transhumanism, was the original Chairman of Bush’s panel. Francis Fukuyama — another trans critic — also served on the panel from 2001 – 2005. The rumors that Obama planned to make Transhumanist Socialist James Hughes leader of the new "People’s Panel for Biological Excellence" have already proven to be a lame joke perpetrated by h+ editor and cyber-iconoclast RU Sirius.
It’s too early for bio-progressives to get out their party hats. Obama has a habit of feinting one way, shifting the other way, throwing a bone to the opposition… and then charging up the middle. We could wind up with Reverend Rick Warren in charge as the token biocon. I mean, probably not but you never know.
