Bush vows to veto stem cell bill

LabThe Senate is in the midst of debating whether or not they should fund stem cell research, but the White House has made it clear that Bush will veto the bill if it’s sent to his desk. If that happens, it would be the first veto of Bush’s presidency.

“Just because the budding lives would not survive does not mean that we should ghoulishly conduct experiments on them,” said Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning.

“There is just no sensible, logical reason why we would not make use of stem cell research,” counters Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter.

Breaking with party lines, Nancy Reagan, wife of the deceased former president, supports funding stem cell research. She believes it may lead to breakthrough cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s, which claimed her husband.

  1. OMG, I’m back on the high school debate team: If we’re to truly embrace the technologies and capabilities of our era then we must abandon our traditional way of viewing things like life — artificial life and intelligence was not an issue when much of the law of modern religions was drafted, so we cannot use that solely as a precedent. It’s like continuing to support slavery because our forefathers did.
