Undemocratic, Non-scientific, and Without Integrity–
These are a few words I can think of which describe the position taken by President Obama on embryonic stem cell research. His position is undemocratic in that (once again) it shows a total lack of concern for those who argue that humanity is undermined by pro-abortion policies.
The position is not scientific in that it totally ignores the real success of adult stem cell research. This website has the score at 73-0. The 73 score represents the successful application of adult stem cells. The 0 score represents the successful application of embryonic stem cells.
The position is without integrity because it forces the destruction of human embryos for no reason except “to experiment.” There is no longer promise held out for embryonic stem cells. The promise is in adult stem cells (iSPCs). The only reason to continue with the charade that there is “hope” for embryonic stem cells is to keep the cruel farce alive that, perhaps, there is a justification for destroying human life (that is, perhaps there is justification for abortion). For more on how Obama relies on hype instead of hope, see here.
