It's bad enough that the worst President America has ever known used his first veto to ban federal funds for embryonic stem cell research. What could be worse than that?
Blatantly suggesting that those who engage in such conduct are murderers.
In his veto speech, in which the shameless George I was surrounded by exploited 'snowflake babies,' unused fertility clinic embryos that got 'adopted,'Bush equated stem cell research with "the taking of innocent life."
Need it to be any more clear? The politically tone-deaf Press Secretary, Tony Snow, added: "He simply thinks murder's wrong."
So those who would put to use, for the public good, embryos that would have been utilized for research to help end human suffering, are killers? It's better to throw them out? And, if those who would perform stem cell research are killers, exactly what does that imply about those people who run fertility clinics? And what of couples who have destroyed embryos in their pursuit of a fertile egg?
Tom Harkin, Democratic Senator from Iowa has it right when he says, " If that's murder, how come the president allows that to continue? Where is his outrage?"
According to Charles Babington, in the Washington Post, Senator Harkin also added that the Bush veto was "a shameful display of cruelty, hypocrisy and ignorance."
And what of the vast majority of the American public that favors embryonic stem cell research, according to opinion polls?
Obviously, Bush feels we approve of murder.
We need to show him what he think of his disgusting and inhuman politics in November.
Senators that need to be defeated for allowing Bush to do this can be found here. It includes Nebraska Democrat Nelson.
I will be adding links to the House roll call vote in a future post.
