Democrats in Congress pushed through a bill to allow federal tax dollars to be used to destroy human embryos. Despite 16 moderate Democrats voting against the bill, Nancy Boyda ignored the majority of her constituents and voted for the bill.
Regardless of where you stand on the pro-life scale, an overwhelming majority of Americans have said time after time that taxpayer funding should not be used to destroy innocent human life. The Democrats are now overriding this well establised standard and would have the federal government use tax dollars to destroy embryos, what many regard to be the most basic form of human life.
From a practical standard, it's also a waste of taxpayer dollars. Not one treatment or cure for a disease has come from embryonic stem cells. Not one. And hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on research around the world to try and find one.
We should continue to focus our scarce research dollars on adult stem cells that have produced many positive results rather than using those dollars to destroy life.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
