Fence sitting

Gordon Brown is set to allow his MPs to vote against parts of a controversial embryo bill – if it means it is not defeated.

Is it just me or is that a little bit dictatorish? But this is not my point.

I have to say that this bill makes me a little uneasy. I’m not sure how I feel about it. Ethically it seems a bit wrong and worrying (although I may be watching too many films like I Am Legend), but I would like to see it help people. It’s a bit like the animal testing thing. There is a very famous person who, in the 60s/70s campaigned against animal testing. However, when a member of their family was very ill they changed their opinion. They were for the testing as long as their family member got well again.

What to do, what to do!
