I applaud the President - Vetos Embryonic Stem-Cell Research
I applaud! the President for rejecting legislation that would fund embryonic stem cell research. The first veto of his presidency he kept his promise on this life-and-death issue. The House voted 235-193 to overturn Bush’s veto, but that fell short by 51 of the required two-thirds majority.
I am for stell cell research using adult stem cells and embryonic umbilical cord stem cells, but not embryonic.
Here's what Jennifer Lahl, Director of The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network said: "Our government should not fund research that treats nascent human life as a harvestable crop. We should not be in the business of creating human life for the sole purpose of destroying it—no matter what the end results may be." Read the rest here on Friday.
