"A company well-named Neocutis now offers a skin cream made from human
fetal tissue. To quote the company's Web site: 'Inspired by fetal skin's
unique properties, Neocutis's proprietary technology uses cultured fetal
skin cells to obtain an optimal, naturally balanced mixture of skin
nutrients.' This outfit, it may not surprise Gentle Reader to learn, is
based in San Francisco, and says its product can 'turn back time to
create flawless baby-skin again.' What good news for those suffering
from dry skin -- and who doesn't this time of year? ... But there's sure
to be some reactionary who objects to progress, and a niggling objection
did indeed surface here and there to this latest advance in the
commodification of the unborn. In its defense, Neocutis issued a
statement to all concerned: 'Our view -- which is shared by most medical
professionals and patients -- is that the limited, prudent and
responsible use of donated fetal skin tissue can continue to ease
suffering, speed healing, save lives and improve the well-being of many
patients around the globe.' And improve the company's balance sheet,
too. Call it another benefit from the ever-growing abortion industry.
And another triumph of supply-side economics! Create the supply and
demand will follow. It does make one wonder why, if the use of human
fetuses for such purposes is so unalloyed a good, the company feels the
need to assure us that the practice is 'limited, prudent and
responsible.' Is that a faint echo of some vestigial conscience?"
--Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editor Paul Greenberg

SOCIALISM is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance 
and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal 
sharing of misery. -Winston Churchill
