Sacrificing lives for votes

Jul 24, 2006

President Bush recently vetoed a bill to provide government funding for embryonic stem cell research ignoring all the medical possibilities that such research holds for saving lives.

Pandering to the most base religious prejudices, Bush claimed to be defending the lives of unborn children. Lining up children conceived from embryos which had undergone fertility treatment, Bush declared that, “They remind us of what is lost when embryos are destroyed in the name of research.”

So explain this Mr. Bush: Those children were conceived only because of earlier research done on embryos!
