U.S. Senate Will Vote on Whether Embryos Live or Die

by Jennifer Mesko, associate editor

Scientists say they need embryos; your tax dollars may fund research.

Embryonic stem-cell research is legal, but now Congress wants to use even more of your tax dollars to fund it. On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate will begin debating S. 5, which would destroy human life and put a premium on human cloning. A vote is set for Wednesday. President Bush has said he will veto the bill.

“The passage of this bill would send the message that the U.S. Senate is willing to sacrifice the weakest and most vulnerable,” said Dawn Vargo, associate bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family Action. “An affirmative vote would say that senators care more about some scientists and special-interest groups who would like to see unproven research funded with federal dollars.”

On today’s Focus on the Family radio broadcast, Carrie Gordon Earll, senior analyst for bioethics at Focus on the Family Action, urged listeners to support life and to ask their senators to do the same.
