Obama Reverses Stem Cell Policy

President Obama today reversed the standing embryonic stem cell research policy by signing an executive order. The order will allow federal money to go directly to the research. Private research has been conducted for years with no real break-throughs reported. All promising research and findings have been in the adult stem cell research field. If embryonic stem cells were so critical to expanding treatments, private money from corporate drug companies would have flooded in to fund the work. However, they know that there is no future there and have invested in the adult and umbilical chord blood research instead.

Obama tried to throw a bone to conservatives by saying that cloning was bad and dangerous. I guess killing embryos for so called medical research is not bad or dangerous. Obama has quite the full plate and in my opinion needs to focus on the economy. Instead, he is trying to accomplish all of his objectives in the first 100 days. I really expected nothing less from a man that would not want his daughters punished with a baby. He has already reinstated using your tax dollars to fund over seas abortions. Look out gun owners, you could be next.
