Embryonic Stem Cell Research Vote and Veto

The Prairie Priest from Sioux Falls who blogs at "White Around The Collar" has the votes on the recent stem cell bill in the U.S. Senate.

The following is a list of U.S. Senators who voted in favor of killing and using babies currently frozen in order to "harvest" their stem cells:

Now here is a list of those senators who voted to defend the babies:

And of course a huge thank you to President Bush for doing the right thing. I fear, however, that in the future we may not have someone like him to do the right thing when in comes to saving the lives of the little ones. We must pray that our nation will come to realize the great evil of using children for their spare parts. how did we ever get to the point where the majority of senators think it is ok to use people for their parts. It's very, very sad. But thanks be to God that many children have been spared...for now.

anna: Using aborted or so-called "unused" embroyo stem cells is just plain wrong. Once we start accepting the use of embryonic stem cells the lower the value we will place on human life.

I lost 2 members of my immediate family to cancer. If embryonic stem cells could have saved them, I would prefer that they died. Using a sinful, horrible, act to do a "good" is still a sin. Taking a life to save a life is not a good thing.

These cells were not aborted for the sole purpose of saving a life.

If you had done any open minded research on the subject you would also understand that though there are embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells the stems cells that touch the hot button are embryonic. You cannot honestly believe that any woman works to get pregnant for the sole purpose of aborting the fetus to use for this type of research. THAT is what you infere by arguing it is HARVESTED. If there has ever been a case of a woman getting pregnant to harvest the fetus - it is rare if not unheard of.

There are adult stem cells as well that though not as flexible in use as embryonic are still useful. No abortion whatsoever. No killing of ANY "life" whatsoever - yet it cannot be delved into because people are so one-sided.

Additionally, many embryonic cells can be created artificially and there is no aborting of anything.

THis too I know crosses a thin line for anyone who sees the world in black and white. It's unfortunate - God created gray areas yet people are fearful to accept them.

This is why it is narrow minded. Please do TRUE research on this - nothing in a pmaphlet given out by EITHER side of the debate- each is too clouded with their beliefs to give clear reasoning. Do not go by what others tell you. When you have read and understand the science entirely, then and only then can you profess you distate or approval for anything. It is clear by your wording - you have not.
