>>>I used to be all for this type of research. Then my wife and I had a child
See, this is how we can be sure your argument is emotion-based instead of fact-driven. Unsurprisingly, your hormonal adjustment and parental instincts interfere with clear thinking. Logically, you having a child is unrelated and irrelevant event to evaluating merits and ethics of medical research.
Too bad you succumbed to "Think of the children" hysteria, and my condolences on the premature demise of your logical self.
