Do No Harm: The Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics is under attack. What else is new? In the "culture of death" which surrounds us, standing tall for such things as the inherent sanctity of all human life guarentees that you'll make an easy target.
No matter than that this organization is thoroughly professional, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and scientific accuracy -- those whose desire is to push for genetic manipulation, experimentation that willfully destroys human lives, more abortion and less care for the elderly ill, etc. will certainly have no scruples about engaging in character slurs.
This letter from the Do No Harm board persuasively defends their organization from just such an attack. But its readers, of course, will be much, much fewer in number than those who read the Science letter in the first place. That's the kind of uneven playing field that Do No Harm and other pro-life advocates must deal with.
