Well, it’s good to know that dispite so much focus being on Iraq and what we should do there that attention is still being given to important issues at home.

President Bush has vetoed a bill that would have eased restraints on federally funded
embryonic stem cell research. Democrats, who had made the legislation a top priority
when they took control of Congress in January, denounced his decision.

Using embryonic stem cells is wrong.  Why?  Because to get embryonic stem cells you have to destroy a human embryo which is (whether you like it or no) a human child.  Allowing this kind of thing is no different than allowing children to be killed so that thier organs can be used in transplants.

Wrong is wrong and there’s nothing you can do to change it except stop doing the wrong thing.  Allowing, funding or otherwise supporting the use of embryonic stem cells is the wrong thing.  There are several other lines of research available that would not present this conflict.  I don’t for the life of me understand why more attention isn’t focused on them instead of the one that involves killing children.
