Embryonic Stem Cell Research Bill and Threat of Presidential Veto
I just can’t understand the logic of President Bush as his spokesman suggests that he will be vetoing the bill passed by House and Senate to support federal funding for new embryonic stem call lines. According to news reports, Tony Snow stated in a press conference today "The simple answer is he thinks murder's wrong, The president is not going to get on the slippery slope of taking something living and making it dead for the purposes of scientific research."
But surely, the President knows that aborting a fetus already developing in the mother’s womb is legal and not murder. On what basis of law or philosophy or science could the President say it is murder to use a embryo not intended for implantation for a public good. That is no way to be potentially beneficent to the billions of living persons simply to protect an already discarded embryo.
Let’s hope he uses common sense and not veto the bill, instead of imposing his personal view on the majority of American’s who support embryonic stem cell research. ..Maurice.
