“The Democratic-controlled House Thursday passed a bill bolstering embryonic stem cell research that advocates say shows promise for numerous medical cures,” says a story by the Associated Press.
Here’s the position of the Catholic League as expressed by president Bill Donohue:
“In 1993, within 48 hours of being sworn in as president of the United States, Bill Clinton issued five pro-abortion pronouncements, including a repeal of the ban on abortion counseling at federally funded clinics. It took the House Democrats less than 100 hours this year to voice its support for killing embryos. In other words, despite all the talk about God and respect for human life, the Democrats haven’t changed their stripes. Rhetoric is cheap; voting records are what matters.”
