Well, we new it was coming. It looks like President Obama is going to reverse the Bush policy on federal funding for stem cell research on Monday. This isn’t surprising since candidate Obama made clear his lack of concern for the unborn. In fact he was probably the most ant-life candidate we’ve ever seen. And to make matters worse we have to listen to sanctimonious bullshit like this:
The aim of the policy is to restore “scientific integrity” to the process, the administration official said.
Which is really just the opposite of what Obama is doing. As we’ve seen in other areas of his administration already, Obama doesn’t care about ethics – just results. As the article points out toward the end, there have been several breakthroughs with other types of stem cells that don’t require the destruction of embryos, especially those found in amniotic fluid and umbilical chord blood. And if stem cells were the panacea that opponents of Bush’s policy claimed, private groups would be rushing to fund it in the hopes of cashing in. But this is the kind of stuff we can look forward to from a president who has no regard for life.
