Stem Cells, Federal Funding
It's interesting that President Bush's first veto is the federal funding for stem cell research. I'm glad he did. There are too many people who question the morality of destroying embryos (killing babies) and then utilizing human parts in research (are we just things?). This doesn't stop the use of stem cells, it's just that federal money won't be spend on it. If people who support stem cell research really, truly believe in it's potential, they will find ways to fund it. So far, I've seen nothing valid that supports claims that stem cells will be this wonderful cure-all. I'm worried that unscrupulous researchers are hyping up stem cells just to make money.
