Religious Right Group Calls for Boycott of American Cancer Society

Nothing extreme here, nothing at all:

Religious Right activists have frequently found themselves at odds with the prominent health organization the American Cancer Society, attacking the group over its support for stem-cell research, the approval of an HPV vaccine, and for an anti-smoking program by an Iowa Planned Parenthood clinic. Josh Braham, the director of Right to Life Central California and the host of Life Report, has taken this antipathy to a new level, calling for a boycott of American Cancer Society activities because of the group’s support for stem cell research. Writing for the anti-choice website LifeNews, Brahm calls for a boycott of the Relay for Life and claims that supporting the group is no different than aiding Nazi scientists.

There is no greater example of the "Right To Life" moral bankruptcy than their stem cell fetish. They would rather see living, breathing, sentient human beings die than kill a few cells in a petrie dish. You tell me who's the Nazi?
