In this corner, weighing in at who knows how many pounds, we have Michael J. Fox:

And in this corner, the opponent.. err, opponents:

The legislation in question is an amendment to the Missouri state constitution that would essentially write into their Constitution the right to clone.

    The thing that struck me about the Michael J. Fox video was: he’s extremely brave to put himself out there like that. He’s letting everyone see him in the condition he’s in. And by coming out in favour of stem cell research, he’s leaving himself open for the very worst kind of people (e.g. Rush, etc.) to attack him. What a fighter.

    Rush Limbaugh is a drug addict who should have gotten jail time for his prescription medication violations.

    Who cares what this animal says? Making fun of someone struggling with Parkinson’s Disease is evil

    But what do you expect from Rush? HIs mother was a prostitute.
