Obama Reverses Stem-Cell Policy

President Obama has reversed the Bush administration’s policy on stem-cell research, opening the way for new embryo’s to be processed for use in research, funded by government dollars.  He said “Our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values.”

Actually, he is the one making a false choice.  It is not all sound science that is the problem.  It is science that intentionally destroys innocent human life.

As for morality, I hope that we can agree that it is wrong to intentionally destroy innocent human life.

So, this brings up the question of when does human life begin?  This is a religious, or philosophical question, not a scientific one.    There are many people in this country who believe that human life begins at conception.  Therefore, for all of those people, embryonic stem cell research may be  scientific, but it is, and always will be immoral. 

President Obama has clearly sided with a certain philosophical view regarding the beginning of human life.  That is clear from his views, and his action, on abortion and embryonic stem cell research.  That is the choice that has been made, not a choice between morals and science.

It is the wrong choice.
