It's Not Really Human Life that We're Talking About, Right?

From the Washington Post...

Stem Cell Bill Gets Bush's First Veto
Thursday, July 20, 2006; A04

President Bush issued the first veto of his five-year-old administration yesterday, rejecting Congress's bid to lift funding restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research and underscoring his party's split on an emotional issue in this fall's elections.

At a White House ceremony where he was joined by children produced from what he called "adopted" frozen embryos, Bush said taxpayers should not support research on surplus embryos at fertility clinics, even if they offer possible medical breakthroughs and are slated for disposal.

The vetoed bill "would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," the president said, as babies cooed and cried behind him. "It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect." Each child on the stage, he said, "began his or her life as a frozen embryo that was created for in vitro fertilization but remained unused after the fertility treatments were complete. . . . These boys and girls are not spare parts."

So President Bush has demonstrated that he actually DOES know how to use his VETO pen after all.

And he saved it for this.

Completely and totally irresponsible.

Does the President not understand that Embryonic Stem Cell Research could possibly in the distant future help literally Hundreds of people who suffer from a wide variety of diseases and syndroms, both real and imagined?

Does he not know that these are the Elderly that will benefit from the discoveries that will be discovered someday through Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

Does he not understand that the Generations of Americans who thought up and voted for things like the Great Society and Social Security MUST be preserved, no matter the cost?

If the destruction of thousands of Human Embryos will result in the prolonging or improvement of even one elderly or handicapped person's life in any way, then isn't it worth it?

I mean, it isn't really human lives we are talking about, right?

They're just Embryos, right?

I think that Government Funded, Taxpayer supported creation of Human Embryos to be destroyed in the name of Medical Research is a wonderful idea.

As a matter of fact, I think that we should explore what other uses we can find for both Human Embryos and Aborted Fetuses...

How about this?

We could use them to feed the poor!

Just think of the hunger that could be alleviated, simply by using resources that we are currently throwing away!

Everyone wants to ease the suffering of the less fortunate, right?

We could feed all of our aborted Fetuses to the poor hungry people of America!

We could even create Human Embryos in Embryo Farms, grow them into fetuses suitable for aborting, and then feed them to the poor!

Think of the possibilities!

We would have an unlimited supply, they are made out of meat, and they obviously contain all the nutrients that a human being would require, because they are made up of exactly the same stuff as a human being!

So, all of you supporters of Abortion and Embryonic Stem Cell Research, unite with me now!

Let's put pressure on our elected leaders to implement this plan to feed the poor as soon as possible!

Let's stop wasting this valuable resource, and begin to use it to help the less fortunate!

Isn't it the least we can do?
