"thoroughly investigated..."

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jan 30, 2004

On January 7, CWN ran a story reporting that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington had written a pro-life group to assure them that a problem concerning research at Georgetown University involving cells from aborted fetuses had been resolved. McCarrick is quoted as saying:

"I have had this matter thoroughly investigated and I am pleased to tell you that Georgetown Medical Center's Tissue Culture Bank is now well aware of the moral problems concerning use of certain cell lines and research involving tissue culture."

Sound-Off commenter O'Solanus quickly spotted the equivocation in McCarrick's statement and wrote:

Being "aware of the moral problems" is not an assurance that they have discontinued use of aborted cell lines. Do we know that the research has stopped, and that this is not evasive double-talk on the part of Cardinal McCarrick?

Well folks, we know now.
