Embryonic Stem Cell Research Funding: Untimely, Unwarranted, & Unwise

A few days ago President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Obama) gave his approval to destroy human life in the name of scientific research.

The following information was provided via an action alert from the American Family Association (AFA).

Embryonic stem cell research is both immoral and ineffective. It is immoral because it destroys human life at its earliest stage of development by harvesting the stem cells for body parts. It is ineffective because it has yet to be used a single time in any therapeutic application.

Researchers must get their funding from taxpayers for embryonic stem cell research because they can't convince private sources to invest. Private investors know there are no proven uses for embryonic stem cells. It's all hype, hope and theory.

But adult stem cell research, on the other hand, is ethically benign and is already being used to treat over 70 diseases and conditions. If taxpayer dollars are going to be spent on stem cell research, that's where it ought to go.

By reversing funding restrictions on embryonic stem cell research, Pres. (Soetoro a/k/a) Obama is making every American taxpayer complicit in immoral, life destroying research. This is a terrible example of political ideology trumping sound science.

TAKE ACTION

Send an e-mail to President (Soetoro a/k/a) Obama telling him you are disappointed in his decision to allow the destruction of human life.

Here is a copy of the email I just sent to the current occupant of the White House:


Subject: Funding for Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Dear Mr. President,

I am greatly disappointed in your decision to allow the destruction of human life in the name of scientific research. I urge you to reverse your decision. One of your predecessors in the office of president once said:

"We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life -- the unborn -- without diminishing the value of all human life .... There is no cause more important."

EMAIL THE PRESIDENT
