Obama Allows Embyronic Stem Cell Research
March 9, 2009
Dear Pastor and Mrs Ed,
Today marks another sad day in the history of our country.
A few hours ago President Obama signed an executive order that will allow your tax dollars to fund human embryonic stem cell research. This decision comes on the heels of several executive decisions to fund the destruction of human life at taxpayers’ expense.
President Obama’s executive order rolls back an executive order that President Bush signed on August 9, 2001 that banned the use of federal funds for embryonic stem cell research with the exception of existing stem cell lines. In other words, no new embryos could be created for destruction.
President Obama has now opened the door for scientists to create embryos for the sole purpose of destroying them to conduct research using your tax dollars.
President Obama promised to bring hope to our political process, but today’s decision does not bring hope to the most vulnerable among us. Today’s decision doesn’t even bring concrete hope for medical cures, as President Obama himself admitted today, “the full promise of stem cell research remains unknown, and it should not be overstated.”
What is hopeful are the amazing medical results that have been achieved through adult stem cell research, a process that does not involve the destruction of human life.
True scientific integrity is advancing successful science that respects moral standards and the inherent value of human life at all stages. Compassion can never be built upon callous disregard for human life.
Today’s decision is just the latest attack on Life from President Obama. Already he has directed American tax dollars toward international abortion providers by overturning the pro-life Mexico City Policy. His decision to fund the United Nations Population Fund will subsidize the destruction of unborn children around the world.
Add these decisions to his expected rollback of conscience protections for pro-life medical professionals and we find an alarming trend: respect for human life, and the consciences of American taxpayers are casually dismissed in favor of an abortion industry bailout and the funding of immoral science that has yet to yield a single success.
Despite these challenges, we must keep up our fight to defend innocent human life!
We can stop the anti-Life assault. By taking our fight to the Senate, we can reach the 41 Senators we need to block President Obama's anti-Life demands. We can end the use of more of your tax dollars for the destruction of innocent human life.
Thank you for your commitment to protecting human life.
