We are being told, by anonymous sources at the White House, that on Monday, President Obama will sign an executive order lifting the ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. This has led one pro-life advocate, Rep. Chris of New Jersey, to refer to Obama as the “abortion president.”
In his statement, Smith asks, “Why does the president persist in the dehumanizing of nascent human life when better alternatives exist? Human embryo-destroying stem cell research is not only unethical, unworkable and unreliable–it is now, demonstrably unnecessary.”
Why indeed? This is purely ideological. Remember, as a state senator in Illinois, Obama fought against a law that would have protected the life of a baby delivered alive during an abortion. Smith is correct in referring to Obama as the abortion president.
And so the onslaught against innocent human life continues in this administration.
