While campaiging for the office last year, our President was very clear he was not a fan of the unborn. That was the primary reason I could not vote for him. Now that he is President, he is remaining faithful to his promises concerning our unborn children: killing them is just fine. In fact, the Federal government should help fund such murders in the name of research.
Despite all the claims from various Obama supporters, the handwriting is on the wall. This President is going to do whatever he can to perpetuate abortion on demand and the overused tag line "it's a woman's choice". Woman, your choice ends when you engage in the act! Permitting the flow of Federal money into embryonic stem cell research simply opens the door for more and more abortion. Check out a few articles here and here and here and here.
Some will argue that embryos (read babies) are not human but our God says differently.
"Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me." (Psalm 51:5; David's mother conceived HIM, not some embryo).
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you" says God to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5.
"And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has conceived a son" (not an embryo, or a blob of cells, but a SON; Luke 1:36).
There are other references but these alone make it clear that, from God's perspective, a new life exists at the moment of conception. To take that life is murder. And now our President has permitted a new onslaught of human life on the grounds that new cures MAY be found for various diseases. Check out the stem cell cures check list here.
Another sad day among many lately in the history of the United States. May God be merciful to us, a people who have lost their way.
