Bush Prepares to Veto Stem Cell Bill
The real stem cell bill passed yesterday, and despite the fact that it only makes embryos available for research--neither funding stem cell research nor even lifting the ban on funding--Bush has unsurprisingly promised a veto.
"The president believes strongly that for the purpose of research, it's inappropriate for the federal government to finance something that many people consider murder. He's one of them," spokesman Tony Snow said.
If he really considers it murder, it's high time he attempted to arrest every employee of every fertility clinic in the nation--and every customer--for the greatest act of genocide ever perpetrated, still ongoing. Or perhaps actually attempt to make it illegal in some fashion to kill these murder victims on a daily basis. In other words: why is it only murder when the embryos are used for research? And if it isn't, why has he made no attempt to prevent these murders that are occurring regardless, but only attempt to ensure that no research can be conducted from them?
