Just who exactly is it that is attempting to legislate ideology?
- Hillary Clinton before today's Take Back America conference.
If President Bush was putting ideology before the science, he'd call for a ban on all embryonic stem cell research. But despite his personal views that "all human life is sacred" and that embryonic stem cells is more than just so much "clump of cells", he has left the research open-ended, to be explored through state and private funding. Not federal.
To insist on federal funding when half the country is opposed, especially when thus far adult stem cells has yielded promising, fruitful research, whereas embryonic stem cell research has not, is to put ideology before the science.
