Thank you President Bush. No citizen should be forced to contribute his/her hard earned tax-dollars to pay for the destruction of innocent human life in the name of "science" (despite the fact that there are many more successful ways to use/procure stem cells- all of which do not result in the end in the destruction of a human life.) Via the AP:

President Bush cast the first veto of his 5 1/2-year presidency Wednesday, saying legislation easing limits on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research "crosses a moral boundary" and is wrong.

"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Bush said at a White House event where he was surrounded by 18 families who "adopted" frozen embryos not used by other couples, and then used those leftover embryos to have children.

"Each of these children was still adopted while still an embryo and has been blessed with a chance to grow, to grow up in a loving family. These boys and girls are not spare parts," he said. [Emphasis mine}

If the President really believes that this is murder why doesn't he shut down the In-Vitro Fertilization clinics that create embryos that are goinf to be destroyed? Do you support that? And what about the 400,000 embryos that already exist? Are they all going to be adopted by the people who believe destroying them would be murder? Or is the President's "courageous stand" just more election-year pandering to fire up his base?

If in-vitro fertilization clinics are not federally funded, the President can’t really shut them down. It would be wonderful if all of the embryos that already exist are adopted, but even if they are not, research doesn’t justify destroying human life. The President didn’t have anything to gain from this. In fact, he probably lost more in terms of public perception. If you read the President’s speech, I think it’s evident that he vetoed this because of his own personal belief in the sanctity of human life and used the opportunity to educate the American public. Well done, Mr. President!
