Obama’s Speech

As President Obama finished addressing the topic, I spoke to Rep. Mike Pence (R, Ind.) regarding Obama’s policy of funding experiments that require the destruction of human embryos:

“I’ve always believed it’s morally wrong to use taxpayer dollars that destroy human embryos. But now it’s not only morally wrong, but also completely unnecessary. It is as thought the administration and the abortion-rights Left in this country has completely ignored the extraordinary medical advances of the last year and a half, which have essentially rendered destructive embryonic stem-cell research unnecessary…From the very beginning of this administration, this president has been trampling on the sensibilities of pro-life taxpayers — using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion overseas, and the omnibus bill actually erodes the historic protection of Kemp-Kasten. And now this decision — it’s all part of a pattern.”
