Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Thursday that one of her first actions if she wins the 2008 election will be reversing President Bush's protections on embryonic stem cell research. Bush has twice vetoed bills that would force taxpayers to fund the research, which requires the destruction of human life.
Bush also put in place a policy in August 2001 that prevents federal funding of any new embryonic stem cell research and, instead, concentrates most federal money in the area of adult stem cells.
Those are the cells that have shown the most promise in treating patients, as embryonic stem cell research has encountered significant problems such as immune system rejection issues.
Still, she called the limits and protections Bush has instituted a "ban on hope."
"The Bush administration has declared war on science," Clinton claimed in an address to the Carnegie Institution for Science. "When I am president, scientific integrity will not be the exception it will be the rule."
According to an AP report, Clinton also claimed the Bush administration has tied the hands of scientists on both stem cell research as well as issues such as abortion and the morning after pill.
She said she would establish new guidelines preventing political appointees from altering or removing or altering conclusions from government scientists.
"For six and half years under this president, it's been open season on open inquiry," Clinton said. "By ignoring or manipulating science, the Bush administration is letting our economic competitors get an edge in the global economy. I believe we have to change course, and I know America is ready."
She also cited administration officials who have questioned studies showing a link between abortion and breast cancer.
LifeNews.com reported this week on a new study showing how having children helps women reduce their chance of contracting the disease.

Hitlery CLinton will do her best to kill as many unborn children as possible if she gets anywhere near the White House. As of 3,000 daily and 1,500,000 annually is not enough.
What a monster(ette)!

Hillary Klinton makes me want to reverse my position on abortion and make it retroactive.

She’d reverse ahail of a lot more than that if she could get her beady little hands on the controls.

Well, of course she would. She’s pure evil. That crap about prayer getting her through the Bill Pill’s “not sex” sex in the oval office of our great Nation is just that, CRAP. She can’t have it both ways. But she’ll sure try. She’ll try to have it as many ways as she thinks she needs. One set of values for one group, another for another group. I simply call it lying. She has proven she knows how to do that.
Hill Pill, is it prayer and God and faith, or is it your ways over God's ways. We're waiting for an answer, but never mind, we already know the answer and it stinks.

Keep Jezebill out of the White House!!
Do you know that the BODY’S EXHIBIT was at the Carnegie Institution for Science (In Pittsburgh) this weekend? Do you REALLY think those dead people chose to be displayed in a REAL horror freak show? Hillary says: “When I am president, scientific integrity will not be the exception it will be the rule.” Bottom line: SHE’S NO GOOD. She needs to take a tour through these science places to see what really is going on. In fact, all of us should. Go to: www.myfoxny.com and search movie clip using words - organ donation controversy. Note: this young man did NOT have strokes - get the picture. The killing is in full forces right here in the great USA. We need change in very high places.
“The killing is in full forces right here in the great USA. We need change in very high places.”
As long as abortion is the main sacrament of the left, people will continue to die. Talk about a “life’s lottery.”

I went to the Bodies exhibit here in Northern Virginia, and I would disagree with the characterization of the show as a "REAL horror freak show".
Anyway, does anybody have a list of where the republican candidates stand on vetoing public funding of embryonic stem cell research? Are any willing to go further and ban the research itself, and not just the public funding?
