"Sadly, President Barack Obama has decided to open the door wider to embryonic stem cell research. In his statement today, the President claimed he did not want to make a false choice between 'sound science and moral values.' He does not need to. Adult stem cells have been proven to treat every single disease the President mentioned in his speech today, from Parkinson's to diabetes, heart disease to spinal cord injuries.

"The action by the President today will, in effect, allow scientists to create their own guidelines without proper moral restraints. The President's new policy will allow cloning of human embryos for research. President Obama's executive order shows disrespect for the deeply held moral convictions of tens of millions of Americans by compelling taxpayers to fund this deadly experimentation.

"Congress still has the opportunity to make the ethical choice. I urge Congress to renew the Dickey-Wicker Amendment which will forbid taxpayer funding of the creation of human embryos solely for their destruction. The research that President Obama supports is not sound science and will destroy human life. There is great potential in this country for research and procedures that will cure many diseases and allow us to maintain our ethical standards. I urge Members of Congress to support Dickey-Wicker and focus funding on the proven science of adult stem cells."
