President Barack Obama Makes Taxpayers Fund Embryonic Stem Cell Research

In the latest move against the pro-life movement and its desire to protect human life before birth, President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Monday forcing taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research. “We will lift the ban on federal funding for promising embryonic stem cell research,” Obama said. He said his administration would make decisions on embryonic stem cell research “based on facts, not ideology,” even though critics have condemned his decision as purely ideological and alternatives have produced better results.
