From TheHill.com: Groups that oppose federal funding for stem cell research say an executive order President Obama signed Monday lifting the ban on such funding could pave the way for some forms of human cloning.
“President Obama’s policy change is especially troubling given the significant adult stem cell advances that are being used to treat patients now without harming or destroying human embryos,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, in a statement released as word of the pending executive order leaked Friday.
According to articles and interviews, embryonic stem cells can cure EVERYTHING – paralysis, Alzheimer’s, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, maybe even the common cold. Interestingly enough, it always seems to be celebrities campaigning for it. Are we taking their word for it because Michael J. Fox says so? When does the unborn child get a say in the matter? Do these people realize that they are asking SCIENCE to kill unborn children for their own benefit? Of course not. The Godless have no fear of anything much less a defenseless child that will be murdered for their own agenda.
“I’m saddened that President Obama has chosen to set aside the views of so many Americans and reversed these restrictions that were put in place to protect these valuable human embryos, especially when our most promising scientific potential has been seen in adult stem cell research,” added Sen. David Vitter (R-La.).
Cloning is still an issue because, as usual, the Democratic agenda want SCIENCE – not reality. Science has no God, therefore no responsibility. The loop holes are massive and will open this up to research so unnatural and inhuman – and this is only the beginning.
AND – when they start cloning embryos…then scientists can have their stem cells and maximize clone research at the same time, all for YOUR tax dollars! Understand, this ban lifted was for federally funded research, this does not include the countless millions that has been privately spent thus far.
It has also been reported today that the University of Michigan is expected to begin research in the spring and has already received $2 million in funding… The Consortium for Stem Cell Therapies will use surplus embryos from fertility centers. More…
As I said, it’s just the beginning.
Here’s to your 15 minutes, Senator.
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Incorporated, says republican Kansas Senator Sam Brownback — a self-professed pro-life Catholic — “abandoned” the unborn by backing Sebelius.
“I think it’s typical of what we’ve seen over the years when somebody’s commitment to the unborn is political rather than a core value with them,” says the pro-life leader. “It’s like the difference between a politician and a statesman.”
I am of the opinion, as well as many others, that this farce is running a course with no end and with no substance. Brownback is clearly turning his back on the voters that trusted him to protect the unborn just to gain notoriety with this pathetic administration to further his own career. No flys on you, Senator, but how in the world will any card-carrying republican ever vote for a man that boldly lied to the people of Kansas that voted for him?
It is Sam Brownback’s desire to become the next Governor of Kansas may be driving his support of Sebelius. “All of Brownback’s flowery words in the past don’t really mean much,” says Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics. “When push comes to shove, he’ll throw the unborn under the bus for some political advantage — and that’s what’s happened here.”
And what about Kanas Senator Pat Roberts? While visiting his site, he mentioned ‘We know we can have a strong dialogue with Governor Sebelius…’ and let’s not forget that Roberts and Brownback have interest in who would be the next Governor of Kansas IF Kathleen Sebelius is accepted as HHS Secretary.
No self respecting republican in the state of Kansas will ever trust these two men again after this…I hope they have enjoyed their brief career.
As he introduced his new choice for secretary of health and human services in the East Room this week, President Obama turned his head from right to left, but he was not looking at the audience. He was reading from two teleprompters strategically set up outside the tight television camera shot.
When he was done, the teleprompters quietly began retracting down to the floor. As she stepped forward to make her remarks, the nominee, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, seemed momentarily surprised.
In an article I read recently, it said what a great ‘orator’ Obama is – I would be too if I was constantly reminded of what to say at any given moment. He has no original thought at all on anything.
Which leads me to wonder WHO is writing this stuff? Who’s opinion are we hearing?
Our next four years are taking a deep breath and afraid to exhale. This president is entering all new law and all kinds of other sundry things that is going to affect the way we live. Somehow this man got elected like some kind of sideshow crash dummy to speak for the radical left to get their agenda going. Ted Kennedy couldn’t be happier; neither Pelosi or Boxer.
When it’s all said and done, we will be in a Socialist environment getting all decisions made for us including when we can born, when we can die – if we can own a home or go to college.
Viability – that’s the word of the future of the Democratic Agenda. I hope you stack up!
In a recent article in foxnews.com: Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., accused Obama of launching two attacks on pro-life measures. In addition to lifting President Bush’s stem cell restrictions, Obama intends to lift regulations from the Bush administration that allow health care providers and institutions to refuse to participate in abortions on grounds of conscience.
“Why does the president persist in the dehumanizing of nascent human life when better alternatives exist? Human embryo-destroying stem cell research is not only unethical, unworkable and unreliable- it is now, demonstrably unnecessary,” Smith said.
The research is controversial because days-old embryos must be destroyed to obtain the cells. They typically are culled from fertility-clinic leftovers otherwise destined to be thrown away.
