Just days after the discovery that embryonic stem-cell transplants can cure both AIDS and leukemia, the cancer research foundation Susan G. Komen has announced that the first "Abort For The Cure" walk in Manhattan will occur in February.
Stem cells from a fetus have the ability to differentiate into a diverse range of specialized cell types," said a Komen Foundation spokesperson. "These specialized cells can turn into anything, and cure any disease."
"Unfortunately, the stem cells need to be harvested from fetuses, which is why we are calling on every pregnant woman to have an immediate abortion and donate the fetus to Komen."
"We were looking forward to having our first child," said Julie Eisenbeirch, who was due six months from today. "But when I found out that my little one could help someone I've never met be cured of a disease that doesn't affect me, I jumped at the chance to terminate the pregnancy."
"We'll always remember little baby Jessica for curing the homeless IV drug user who paid for his treatment with Medicaid."
