The Cruelty Of The Bern

My bold. Jail for Stem Cell Researchers? How Bernie Sanders Lost My Vote:

...What does this have to do with Bernie Sanders?

He voted to imprison SCNT researchers—and fine them one million dollars.

Hard to believe? Here is his vote.

Bernie Sanders voted YES on “forbidding human cloning for...medical research. Voted to pass a bill that would... punish violators with up to 10 years in prison and fines of at least $1 million.”

The specific bill is H.R.234— the Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2003 (Introduced in House) January 8, 2003, by Dave Weldon (R) of Florida.

Not only did Bernie Sanders give his support to this anti-science bill, but he is officially listed as a co-sponsor
So if he's a cosponsor, I suppose it will be more difficult to argue that he didn't know what he was voting for. Methinks, this vote shows more than the Iraq war vote.
