I don't understand the people of this country. How can we as Christians stand by and quietly watch these things unfold????
The president has lifted the ban on stem cell research, clearing the way for significant increase in federal dollars to be used for embryonic stem cell research. This has opened Pandora's box in more ways than one. Where does this man think this money is coming from???
Not to mention the moral ethics of the whole concept of using embryo's (which is a life) as a sacrifice to science?? There is no guarantees of finding treatments and cures through this research. During the Bush administration there has been newer lines created with private monies that are healthier and better suited for treating diseases with proven progress. Biomedical research is important and this administration would be far better served by directing taxpayer funds to research on non-embryonic stem cell, which is both effective and ethical.
We as tax payers should have a say in where our hard earned dollars are going and I for one do not want my money going to this type of research. This administration has chosen for us a false choice between sound science and moral values. This is dictatorship.
Mr Obama says he is a man of "faith" and says he will insist that he will not open the door to human cloning but how can that be any worse than abortion or embryonic stem cell harvesting for treatment to diseases?? None of which are moral, ethical or Bibical in any way shape or form.
In just a few short weeks this President has managed to take away protection of innocent life, and furthering dividing our nation at a time when we need greater unity to deal with the challenges facing us today. Economic strife is taking over common sense. All I can say is God help us!! We need to be on our faces asking God to forgive us for falling so far away from what He meant the human race to be and who to serve.
It isn't the goverment. We are not fooling God.
