A Bitter Irony

John Zmirak:

It’s a bitter irony that nowadays, the very people who treasure a deep concern for the ecology of a planet and maintain a healthy suspicion of the technological designs of large corporations have embraced the use of a drug produced by pharmaceutical giants which doses a woman’s womb with hormones every day — you know, the kind of hormones you don’t want in your chicken? That’s exactly why you go to Whole Foods to buy “free range” in the first place…People who rightly don’t want biomedical waste dumped in a wetland will pour it into their bloodstream. They’ll make sure the skin cream they buy wasn’t tested on animals — then vote for stem-cell research that aims at cloning human babies to serve as spare parts.
