I kind of wonder how much money stem cell research would have gotten if it didn't become such a big issue. Maybe it was a good thing for the religious right to throw a tantrum over this.

Similarly, I know where the local abortion clinic is in town because the protesters were nice enough to point it out for me.

His money, his choice. As much as I disagree w/embryonic stem cell research if rich people/corporations want to fund it there's nothing I can do about it.

The founder of Bloomberg LP, a competitor of the Reuters Group as a global distributor of news and financial information, publicly supports abortion and gay rights and has made gun control a major theme of his second term.
Stem cell research is apparently just the icing on the cake for this "philanthropist."

There's not much in the world right now that can stop a billionaire New York Jew with no sense of Christian morality from throwing his stolen shekels at the most corrupt causes of the age. This is where the savings of New York's poor ends up thanks to the sinful usury upon which this city is based.

Only he didnt make his millions being mayor of NY. Learn a little about the man before assuming!

Here you go putting words into people's mouths again...
I never said he made his money as mayor of New York; I clearly made reference to his economic excess being the result of his involvement in detestable usury.
