President Obama: "We Will Lift the Ban on Promising Embryonic Stem Cell Research"

Several Christian organizations met in Olympia yesterday in a private closed door meeting. I can assure you, we are all on the same page regarding the expansion of the gay agenda---specifically HB 1727 and SB 5688. As facilitator of the meeting, I was encouraged.

Your calls are making a huge impact. I was in Senator King's office yesterday, one Republican we are targeting because we have not felt he was with us on the marriage issue. While he was over on the floor, we spoke to his staff and they assured me they were receiving your calls--lots of calls. Please continue to call or email particularly the list I sent out Friday. If you have already called or emailed your own senator as well as the others, please contact someone who has not called or emailed and encourage them to do so.

Time is of the essence.

President Obama: "We Will Lift the Ban on Promising Embryonic Stem Cell Research"

President Obama took another step against life yesterday by proclaiming, "We will lift the ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research."

During his first week in office, he reversed President Bush's policy that would not allow federal funding of abortions.

With that proclamation, Planned Parenthood and other international organizations that exist off the abortion industry, rejoiced.

Last night, news services reported that the University of Washington Medical School and other institutions across the country also rejoiced. Millions, perhaps billions of your tax payer dollars will now flow into their embryonic stem cell research programs that, to date, have produced no positive results. While adult stem cell research has been successful.

In fact, private money has not invested in embryonic research because it has not produced positive results. Just a couple of weeks ago, embryonic stem cell research was condemned in Israel for causing tumors in a patient.

Steven Ertelt at LIFENEWS says President Obama even misled the public regarding President Bush's policy on the matter.

However, I was most offended and concerned by his comments about the Christian faith and embryonic stem cell research.

The President called his decision a "difficult and delicate balance" and said he sided with a majority of Americans who support the funding.

He said, "Rather than furthering discovery, our government has forced what I believe, is a false choice between sound science and moral values. In this case, I believe the two are not inconsistent. As a person of faith, I believe we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering."

Of course we are to care for each other and work to ease human suffering. Christians are doing that all over the world. And the vast majority of those doing so, believe in the sanctity of life.

His comments are divisive and his moral decision-making is based on moral relativism.

For twenty years Rev. Wright's sermons were okay--until they threatened his political career.

There is no sound science that supports embryonic stem cell research at this time. His decision is an ideological one, a political one, not one based on science.

According to his words, public opinion polls justify creating and destroying human life for research. Do polls and public opinion trump moral values?

Will he teach his children that if everybody is doing it, it must be okay?

Welcome to the future.

God help us.
