Tom Harkin has objected to unanimous consent that would have allowed the unopposed umbilical cord blood stem cell bill to reach the floor for vote and passage. Shame on him. Not surprisingly, he is one of the most self righteous in beating his breast against President Bush’s embryonic stem cell bill funding policy. Turns out that it isn’t treatments he cares the most about, but politics. The Democrats have lost the moral high ground in the stem cell debate.
