Bauer Calls Taxpayer-Funded Embryonic Stem Cell Research 'A Tragedy'
Date:3/9/2009

WASHINGTON, March 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Presidential candidate Gary Bauer on Monday called Barack Obama's decision to waste federal tax dollars on failed embryonic stem cell research "evidence that ideology is the goal here, not saving lives. We are witnessing the beginnings of a tragedy, as lives will be lost and not saved as a result of this change."

The president of American Values made the following statement: "It's tragic that Barack Obama is willing to take tax money from struggling Americans and give it to scientists working on repeatedly failed embryonic stem cell projects...especially as adult stem cell research is yielding real, life-saving results. Most people do not understand that there is no restriction against fetal stem cell research, just a restriction against spending tax dollars to destroy human embryos for a body of work that has resulted in cancers and abnormal cells time and time again. Adult stem cell research, on the other hand, has provided real hope to many patients. In 2008, the National Institutes of Health spent nearly one billion dollars on stem cell research, most of it going to adult stem cell research because of the real hope it offered.

"This policy shift is part of an anti-life agenda that now will allow human embryos to be destroyed to create cell lines. My concern is that the long-term result of this work will lead to a lifting of the ban against human cloning, a development that would allow testing in laboratories on human embryos, human life. But today, Obama's decision to allow federal tax dollars to be used to destroy human embryos is tragic on many levels. He raises false hope for those who are ill; he strains the American taxpayer at a time of economic crisis, and he ignores the humanity of the lives ended in cold laboratories to satisfy a liberal ideology."
