More Theocracy On Stem Cell

President Bush said on Friday he would veto legislation that would loosen restrictions on embryonic stem cell research and expressed concern about human cloning research in South Korea.

In the House of Representatives, supporters of embryonic research sponsored by Republican Rep. Mike Castle of Delaware and Democratic Rep. Diane DeGette of Colorado hope for a vote next week and believe it will be close. Bush said the bill would violate his principles. "I've made it very clear to the Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayers' money, to promote science which destroys life in order to save life -- I'm against that."

How much money is the President spending on his Social Security tour? How about the 9 billion that is missing in Iraq? South Korea's medical break through is the kind that the US should be making. It's not enough that we are losing so many jobs to foreign countries, but now we're lagging behind in medical research that could save millions of lives. The tired old argument that spews out of the "right to lifers"mouths is that the research hasn't produced any results yet. That's why it's called research.

Pissed off Patricia at BlondeSense writes: Bush to Kill Embryonic Stem Cell Research Funding in The Name of Life: Bush was all about “life” today as he threatened to veto a bill that would allow taxpayer money for embryonic stem cell research.

He basically says that if you have a horrific disease, tough shit. He’s not going to allow something akin to a minute blob of jelly to be murdered just so you can possibly have a few more years of life to enjoy. read on
