When asked about an impending Congressional vote on stem-cell research, President Bush said:
“I’ve made it very clear to the Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayers’ money, to promote science which destroys life in order to save life– I’m against that. And therefore if the bill does that, I will veto it.”
He then went on to say:
“However, the use of taxpayers’ money to design and develop new weapons to kill terrorists is A-OK by me! Show me the goods, Mr. Wizard!”
Okay, I was only kidding on that last quote. But he did say the first one, and it strikes me as ironic he’s so entrenched against the enormous life-saving potential of stem-cell research while being so gung-ho about killing Bad Guys.
