Stem Cell Bill Veto'd
Lately, things haven't exactly been right in this country. But today, though you may disagree with me, I find that Mr. Bush putting a veto on that stem cell bill has to be one of the most right things done. I do know this is a hot topic. I know that lots of people believe that their lives will be better with stem cell research going forward. I might agree with that as long as the research includes the several ways that this can be accomplished without using an unborn fetus or an embryo grown specifically to do research.
For instance, researchers have found that the fluid from the umbilical cord is fertile with stem cells able to be used for all sorts of research. Why is it necessary to use unborn children? Why must we murder more children in the name of science? Frankly, I think those people who are so up in arms about using puppies and kittens ought to see that using children is far more devastating than using an animal. Don't get me wrong here. I do not believe in using the animals for frivolous reasons in research. You don't really need animals to do research on makeup.
Embryonic stem cell research is not ethical in any sense of the word when the embryo is raised specifically for research. That is a distruction of life. And I am certain I will step on toes here when I say that it works that way with killing the unborn children in an abortion. I am pro-life. I am always going to be pro-life. And by the way, the label is NOT **anti-abortion**. It's PRO-LIFE!!!!
