Delaware Senate Votes in Favor of Life-Destroying Research

After a debate on the nature of life, the Delaware Senate voted 13-7 Thursday on guidelines for controversial stem-cell research.

The News Journal reported that supporters said the bill was intended to “alleviate the pain and suffering of disease.” But stem-cell research has so far produced no cures.

The guidelines ban “reproductive” cloning, but that leaves the door open for the cloning of human embryos and for in vitro fertilization clinics to donate embryos — all to be destroyed for research.

The Rev. Bowen Matthews Sr., pastor of Brandywine Valley Baptist Church, spoke out for life.

“It’s human life in the Petri dish,” he said. “And it’s human life in the womb.”
