WARNING!

The South Park TV Series is at best:

an animated American television comedy series famous for its off-color humor, pop culture parody, and biting satire covering a wide range of topics. -wiki

At worst, others have said that it is extremely distasteful, morally bankrupt, offensive and vile.  When they tackle the issue of Embryonic Stem Cells they show absolutely zero restraint and tact.

This is not for the faint of heart or sensitive viewer. In these episodes are scenes of abortion, eating fetuses, etc.  Honestly, if you are pro-life, do not watch these!  You will be disgusted! You have been warned!

(Consider this…a pro adult stem cell post)

Another Shakeys Pizza -Season 5 -Kenny Dies: Eric goes to the research lab to learn more about stem cells and how they might save Kenny’s life. Now he must find a way to persuade the government to revoke the ban.
