Bush Vetos Stem Cell Bill

"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Bush said. "It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect."

I guess killing in the name of war isnt crossing that line. Killing to destroy is okay, but killing to heal and save lives is bad.

FACT: 500,000+ Americans will die this year and every year of cancer.

FACT: 5000+ Americans have died so far in the "War on Terror" since 9/11.

Which is deadlier? Why is killing to stop one right and killing to stop another wrong? The President is simply pandering to the far right wing agenda because they voted him into office and give him money. So their tax dollars dont get spent on killing embrionic cells (which will be thrown out anyway if not used) and I have to put up with my tax dollars being used to build bombs and planes to kill people I dont think deserve to die by our hands.

This is why I vote. At least for a few minutes of one day every couple of years, my dillusion about having a voice in this chaos is complete and very comforting.
