Bush's First Veto Proves Something
- Hanlon's razor, Anonymous
Today, President Bush issued the first veto of his presidency, killing a bill that would have eased limitations on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. He claimed the bill "crosses a moral boundary."
- That moral boundary was not crossed when Bush allowed federally-funded research on cell lines created prior to August 9, 2001.
- Bush supports fertility clinics, which generate the large number of embryos destined to be destroyed.
