I see you bought the Democratic and mainline media spin. Bush is the only
President who has allowed stem cell research. What he was against was tax
payers money being used for stem cell research. There are plenty of private
foundations available to do it with no federal funding. And there is nothing
prohibiting them from doing it. In this regard President Bush was allowing
those who want stem cell research to contribute their money to those
foundations, and for those who oppose it, their tax dollars would not be used.
Understand Conservatives, they want the people to make their own decisions with
their money, and not the government telling them they (the government) know how
to better spend the money. Conservatives want you to be able to build wealth
as an individual, liberals don't want you to build wealth, they want to keep it
to their elitist selves, they want the power to control you and keep you down.
Look at welfare, and boy has it worked for them. Now they want socialized
medicine, same deal you give your tax dollars to the government, and let them
decide on your healthcare choices.
I'm 52 years old, have saved every day I have worked, invested and now I no
longer need to worry about social security or medicare. I was raised by
parents who lived a self sustaining life, wouldn't tke the govenments help even
when it was offered. I'll make my own decision when I retire, not the
government telling me I can at 62 or 65 because of social security.

The morality of stem cell research depends on if your or one you love
is dying of a disease that could reasonably benefit from it. If it
does not touch you and yours then it is immoral. Therein lies the
difficulty: for all the promise of stem cell research it does not
influence enough lives (yet) to gain popular support.
