Murder: Error of Intellect, or Error of Will?

Can it be that Bill Clinton and Dr. Gupta (Obama's pick for Surgeon General), don't really know what an embryo is? Watch the clip for yourself. Clinton speaks of embryos as non-fertilized, and said if embryos were ever on their way to being fertilized, they shouldn't be used for experimentation. Surely Dr. Gupta might point out an embryo is an embryo because it has been fertilized, that it is a genetically complete fully fertilized egg. Gupta said nothing.

Could simple ignorance of basic medical science be at the heart of this culture war? Could it be we are seeing mistakes of the intellect, not so much mistakes of the will . . .? Nah. I don't think so either.
