Lets Make Change.

a dissapointment to pro-lifers everywhere

Today the congress failed to overturn the president’s veto of a bill that would allow scientists to use frozen embryos that would otherwise be discarded to cure disease and save lives.  Pro-lifers should be outraged that the potential to save so many human lives was squashed by far right ideologues like Bush who have no problem exchanging the lives of sick people for scoring points with his base.

  1. And what a lovely squashing of the attempt to override the VETO it was. 🙂

  2. what is the up side to this veto? Nothing, now embryos that could have gone towards saving human life will be destroyed. Even if you believe an embryo is a life, if it’s going to be destroyed anyway, isn’t it better that it be used to save others rather than “die” in vain? Whats the issue here?

  3. the issue is that the taxes of peopel thta consider it muder will not be used to fund what they view as unethecial research.

    Bush kept a promise to those that voted for him by this veto. Agree with his view or not, it should be respected that he did run on a promise to do this, and that he is keeping his word by holding to it.

    In a day where campaign pledges are forgotten as soon as they are made, it is nice to see an elected official stick to a pledge he ran on, even when it is unpopular.
