But do you know what does exist? Millions, yes millions of lives either saved or dramatically improved because of the fetal tissue research made possible by the work done at Planned Parenthood and elsewhere:
Top scientists at the University of Wisconsin and the Medical College of Wisconsin have rightly warned that a ban would have a devastating effect on patients, academic researchers and the biotechnology industry.
Fetal cells were used to develop the original polio vaccine and are still used to make vaccines for rubella, shingles, chickenpox and an experimental Ebola vaccine. The tissue is critical for studying conditions that affect the health of fetuses and newborn infants, brain injuries in the womb that lead to cerebral palsy, and eye conditions that lead to macular degeneration.
Researchers also use it to develop treatments for H.I.V., end-stage breast cancer, diabetes and Parkinson's, among other conditions. Last year the National Institutes of Health, a federal agency that spends money only on the research that experts consider most promising, awarded $76 million in grants for fetal tissue research.
So here's my dare to Carly Fiorina. I dare you to watch images of countless kids who suffered from polio not that many years ago, or people today suffering from Ebola, Parkinson's disease, or the other afflictions listed above. Furthermore, I dare you to tell the families of people who might be saved by the fetal tissue research about which you lied that their loved ones shouldn't get helped. If you're willing to do that, I'll come video it myself.
