Bill Clinton is on some news station right now being interviewed, patiently explaining that he believes it's okay to use an embryo for stem cell research as long as you're sure the embryo is never going to be fertilized, but that if there's a chance it could eventually be fertilized and grow into a human being, it shouldn't be used for stem cell research.

No, seriously.

Bill Clinton thinks an embryo is an unfertilized ovum.

I am depressed.

I would like to hope that's a brain fart rather than a genuine lack of understanding. Either way he's making himself look stupid, though, and spreading misinformation.

Perhaps he meant "implanted" instead of "fertilized?"

Or else he doesn't know what an embryo is.

He said "fertilized" and "embryo" each about a dozen times.
