Skip to comments.Obama wants Fed. $$ for embryonic sc research, but NO MONEY for NONembryonic stem cell research
Posted on 03/16/2009 6:30:00 PM PDT by Sun
I was shocked to hear from two sources that Obama is going to rescind Bush's policy of using Federal money from going for NONembryonic stem cell research.
So Obama wants Federal dollars for immoral embryonic stem cell which do not work, but wants to take away money for ethical stem cells which DO work!
This isn’t about embryonic stem cell research. It’s about “designer baby” factories.
I would like to say nothing from him surprises me anymore, but he continues to raise the shock bar.
adult stem cells are showing much more promise than embryonic... so of course the ‘non-political’ decision is to give all the funds to what does not work.
Almost no one in the general public even knows that the only stem cell research that has proven to be medically useful is from adult stem cells. Nothing has come of the embryonic stem cell research. It is purely promoted so that the abortion industry can keep on doing their evil deeds, not having to admit that not yet born children are in fact children. Not ONE thing has been cured or helped with embryonic stem cells. Only adult stem cells are useful. Tell people that. They will not know it. The MSM never tells the truth on this. There is no need to kill not yet born human life for “research”. It is just part of the abortion industry, supporting the continuation of abortion on demand.
What’s next? Removing the tax credit for adoption and replacing it with one for abortion?
Have an abortion this year? That’s a $10,000 tax credit for elimating a potential carbon footprint! Call H&R Block today to claim yours!
I don’t want to be anywhere near this jerk on judgement day.
“adult stem cells are showing much more promise than embryonic... so of course the non-political decision is to give all the funds to what does not work.”
ADULT stem cells have actually helped countless people, while embryonic stem cells cause tumors to grow.

Good post, and another thing the majority of Americans don’t seem to know is that embryonic stem cell research is not against the law. It should be, but it’s not.
But the difference is now tax dollars will have to pay for it.
We need to write letters to the editor and/or call talk shows to inform folks, since MSM won’t do it.
And people will argue with me until they are blue in the face that Bush made embryonic stemcell research illegal. And they certainly flip their lid when I say not only was it NOT illegal, he paid for embryonic stem cell research, just on existing embryos.
They will try and try to find evidence otherwise and I finally say “Just because you have led to believe something doesn’t make it so”.
It sure is frustrating, which is why I write letters to the editor to at least bring out the truth in my neck of the woods.
You can also point out to people that venture capitalists are NOT investing in ESCR, because it doesn’t work - that’s why the Frankenscientists want OUR tax $$. In other words, they want a BAIL OUT.
Another source, I just found:
“also covertly ended Bush’s federal-funding program for other forms of stem-cell research... stem-cell research that does not kill a human embryo.”
Hey, everyone....I just told someone today that I read an article on FR the other day that said that Obama went back and reversed himself on this after reversing Bush’s policy. Was I dreaming that I read that? All I can find now is a satirical article about him reversing himself on this.
I don’t think he knew what he was signing. Obama only reads teleprompters.
Here’s a draft of my letter to the editor, and maybe you can tell me how I can make it better, and correct any mistakes (I’m tired :) ).
Pro-lifers love stem cell research, the NONembryonic kind, that is. Nonembryonic stem cells, like Adult and umbilical cord stem cells, are also the stem cells that work. There have been over 70 successful treatments from Adult stem cells, including treatments for various Cancers, Parkinsons Disease, Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke Damage, MS and many other diseases and injuries.
However, not even one successful treatment from embryonic stem cells.
So why does President Obama want to waste tax dollars on something that doesn’t work? Some say it’s to desensitize Americans about abortion.
I was also surprised to learn that Obama revoked former President Bush’s policy (Executive Order 13435 of June 20, 2007) which funded Adult stem cell research. So in other words, President Obama is giving taxpayer dollars for immoral embryonic stem cell which do not work, but wants to take away money for ethical stem cells which DO work!
Let’s not bail out another unethical and unsuccessful business, the Embryonic stem cell business.”
