President Obama Also Drops Executive Order for Adult Stem Cell Research Funds

stem_cell_researchMost of us are already aware that Obama has decided to use Federal funds (taxpayer money) to fund embryonic stem cell research, which has shown NO results except to destroy life.

The part that has not gotten much press is that at the same time, he has defunded adult stem cell research, which has shown results without destroying life.

Way to go Barry.

President Barack Obama did more on Monday than just force taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cell research that requires the destruction of human life. He also rescinded an executive order President Bush put into place funding adult stem cells and new research with iPS cells.

Obama also rescinded Executive Order 13435 of June 20, 2007.

President Bush put that order in place in June 2007 when he vetoed a Congressional measure that would have required embryonic stem cell research funding.

Instead of signing the bill, President Bush issued an executive order to press for more research into ways of obtaining embryonic stem cells without harming human life. The order was intended to ultimately fund research into alternatives” to destructive embryonic stem cell research such as altered nuclear transfer (ANT), “regression” (reverting differentiated cells into stem cells), and other methods.
