It's good to see Bush knows as much about science as he does about economics, foreign policy, military planning and eating in public.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Is this different than recycling?

Yes, if you believe in a diety. I know it's a huge leap here, and seeing this point of view requires a demonstration of empathy and compassion that appears wholly absent from the militant liberals who have charred this topic with their uninformed idiocy.

Just for a moment, imagine that the country was founded and has been run for 230 years by vast groups of men who believe in God and Judeo-Christian ethics...

The life of a child, therefore, is one of the most precious items to people of this background because they represent pure innocence and cannot defend themselves. Thou shalt not kill...doubly so for children, so it can be surmised.

In those circumstances, it would be unthinkable to force taxpayers to subsidize the 'recycling' of viable unborn humans - no matter how undesirable they might be - just to further what will ultimately result in private commercial gain (albeit with a potential for great medical advancements).

If our government were performing the research and offering the treatments to the "crippled, blind, and lame", perhaps this would be a different discussion. However, we aren't a communist collective (despite the San Franciscan's most ambitious dreams)...fortunately we've been taught by example that socialized medicine is more impractical and likely to fail those who need it most than our own flawed medicine system. Free boob jobs, but 3 month waits for dialysis. No wonder Canadians and europeans flock to the USA for treatments.

Instead, we have this really amazing precept called capitalism and the free market. I'm fairly certain that lots of gigantic drug companies can find the dollars to fund research into stem cells without government assistance if the promise of curing cancer, etc. are tangible. What is at issue here isn't whether or not the US allows stem cell research - Bush opened this door. What he's done is refuse to pay for viable embryos to be recycled for commercial gain. You can disagree if you wish, but there's a 230+ year history of founders and leaders in this country (not to mention hundreds of millions of other people of faith) who take issue - some quietly, some loudly - with the concept of government funded human recycling.

So, to the Left Lisping Regulars who think that Bush used his first ever veto to stick it to the handicapped, I offer the largest ever "F U C K Y O U."
