P.J. O’Rourke and the Stem Cell Sham

from The Weekly Standard:

President Obama went to hell not with the stroke of a pen, but with the cluck of a tongue. His executive order was an error. His statement at the executive order signing ceremony was a mortal error: “In recent years, when it comes to stem cell research, rather than furthering discovery, our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values.”

Exactly. President Obama has utterly neglected the former. Sound Science has already revealed the distinction between embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells; it has already proven the reasonableness of using adult stem cells to create treatements for disease.

By lifting the ban on embryonic stem cell exploitation, which must necessarily result in the destruction of a living human being, in the embryonic stage of development, President Obama has revealed his ignorance of, and contempt for, both sound science and moral values.
