Salem, OR - March 9, 2009 - President Obamas decision to lift the ban on using taxpayer dollars for embryonic stem cell research is deadly for human lives and completely unnecessary, said Gayle Atteberry, Executive Director of Oregon Right to Life.
Ten years of research with embryonic stem cells has produced nothing but failure after failure, while research with adult stem cells and reprogrammed cells is finding cures and clinical successes on a regular basis, Ms. Atteberry continued.
President Obamas executive order today reversed President Bushs 2001 executive order banning federal funds for embryonic stem cell research. Bush issued the order because embryonic stem cell research involves the death of human life. Instead, President Bush put millions of dollars into adult stem cell research. Studies with adult stem cells, published this year, show successful trials treating Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, and other diseases. Cures and treatments for over 70 fatal and debilitating diseases have already been found!
Contrary to success with adult stem cells, extensive research with embryonic stem cells, in America and around the world, for over ten years has not produced one human cure. Development of tumors in test animals has negated any progress made in animal trials.
President Obama has decided to direct taxpayer money on experimentation that has proven to be a failure. The President seems to hope that simply throwing money at the problem will fix it. In the meantime, every failed experiment will cost more human lives. Ms. Atteberry continued, All citizens should demand their tax dollars be directed instead to research that continues to unlock cures to many of our most dreaded diseases.
Oregon Right to Life is Oregons largest and oldest organization dedicated solely to the protection of innocent human life from fertilization to natural death.
Right to Life Ping!
“Research with 100% Failure Rate”
Yeah, but it’s OK, because they’re killing babies, and that’s a liberal cause.
Paying off the Democrat voters again!
Apparently, he knows as much about science and medical research as the economy.
**Apparently, he knows as much about science and medical research as the economy.**
LOL! So true!
More taxpayer funds down a rathole.
I don't care if it's a 100% Succeess Rate - it's still an abomination.
It was just pointed out to me today by an employee that the missile defense shield was a failure too, but with enough research it started to show progress.
“Bush can waste money on that, this is REAL science that helps people.”
Ever sat back, looked around come to the conclusion that you have to work with some real idiots?
We simply MUST be allowed to destroy humans. IF we don’t, people might start thinking there’s something intrinsically important about them.
Is there really anything that 0 backs that doesn’t have a 100% failure rate?
Abortion and stem cell research excede 9/11’s death toll EVERY DAY.
0bama & Co = domestic terrorists
Obama is intent on driving us over the cliff on every front.
Embryonics have been very successful...at creating tumors.
Yes, but the left ants it therefore Obama gives it to them. the left also believes in Global warming, hence Cap and Trade tax.
Just look around, Obama is predictable in some things.
My local tv station had a poll asking if we are FOR stem cell research. I called them and told them in the future call it EMBRYONIC stem cell research, because prolifers are not against adult stem cell research. The poll was 70% FOR stem cells, btw.
I think we ought to call talk shows and/or write letters to the editor to emphasize that there is a difference, plus the ETHICAL one actually WORKS!
Most republicans anymore have lost sight of the fact that the control of the social agenda will guide the fiscal agenda.
The reason they keep losing is because they have abandoned any desire to stand up on the social agenda regarding morality or protection of the family.
Democrats have never, and have put foremost, the social agenda, in the wrong way, I might add. But at least they address it. The GOP is too weak to address and stand up for anything other than money. That is why they are losing. They mean nothing other than money. Everything else they concede on. Sorry GOP, all of this goes hand in hand. Liberal social policy begets bigger government and the abscence of morality. If you don’t believe it, just take a look at what is happening now.
We need to grow up and get a set.
It comes from the secularist ideology that we “learn” in govschool.
Since when does a conservative surrender to that? I am tired of losing America. Are they all that stupid now?
