Kill People in Order to Save People?

President Obama announced Monday he’s overturning the ban on federal funding for fetal stem cell research, which was put in place under President Bush.

Despite the recent and overwhelming scientific research concluding that adult stem cells are successfully used in place of fetal stem cells, Obama soldiers on with his promise to destroy human embryos for the sake of “science.”

One reason this is such a priority for the liberal Obama Administration?

This policy further solidifies the belief that these “unwanted” embryos aren’t really human life.   If the public can be convinced that research on embryos is ok, then abortion- at least at such an early stage- also must be ok.

From CBS News, House Republican Leader John Boehner said the president’s repeal of the ban,

“runs counter to President Obama’s promise to be a president for all Americans. For a third time in his young presidency, the president has rolled back important protections for innocent life, further dividing our nation at a time when we need greater unity to tackle the challenges before us.”

As Rush Limbaugh pointed out Monday, Obama has no problem changing a laundry list of Bush-era policies, yet the President claims no responsibility for- or power over- the 8,600 earmark-packed,$410 Billion Omnibus Spending Bill.

The White House has said that the $410 Billion bill is leftover from the past administration, but that Obama will work hard to curb spending in the future.


It’s with Obama’s own hand and his own pen that this thing will get signed.  If the President is really opposed to earmarks, and if he wants to be taken at his word to “go line by line,” then he’d veto this wasteful spending!

So, Mexico City policy, Guantanamo Bay, union-strengthening, health care for adults and illegals, and fetal stem cell research the President can reverse.

But not money for odor control studies or tattoo removal programs.
