evil begets evil

Kathy Shaidle weighs in on Michael J. Fox pimping for the Embryonic stem cell side.

I'm sorry a movie star has a disease, but that doesn't give him the right to sacrifice others in a quest for a cure. What if there was a chance that experimenting on, say, Parkinson's patients might lead to a cure of something else...? (Paging Dr. Mengele...)

Suffering is part of life, and can even be redemptive. Quixotic campaigns to wipe out every trace of suffering inevitably increase such suffering exponentially, and invent new hybrids in the process. Because such quests are a) founded on faulty principles and/or b) satanic.
Evil begets evil. Suffering will never be wiped out by causing more suffering and sin. Sin is the cause in the first place.
