Such oddly simplistic terms. If we define good as having a net-positive effect without damaging any non-voluntary participants, then yes it is good. The foetuses are already dead, the placenta is useless outside of cooking and the other sources are clearly voluntary. No-one is damaged and we stand to learn more about ourselves. That stands even before realizing that countless lives could be saved. As for the government-funding? No. It should stand on its own two feet.

Side-note: Why are anti-abortionists called pro-lifers when they are not in principle pro-life. Also, why are pro-abortionists called pro-choicers when they are not in principle pro-choice. Is it just snappy advertising?

Pro-lifers care about life until the moment
the baby is born. Then they don't care if
you die of disease, and are generally very
much in favour of the death penalty.

It almost reminds me of the Bill Hicks joke, where he has pro-lifers picketing a cemetery.

You got it babe, but what is wrong with the moniker of pro-choice?

Pro-choice groups are not pro-choice on issues like gun ownership, drug-law, school voucher programs, environmental protections et cetera.

I am, there isn't much that I don't want to choose that is personal stuff.

I am sure you could also find a pro-life advocate who is antiwar and against the death penalty. I am discussing the group at large.
