"Those who speak out against stem cell research may be rooted in admirable conviction about the sacredness of life, but so are the parents of a child with juvenile diabetes who are convinced that their son's or daughter's hardships can be relieved."
You are wrong President Obama. The sacredness of life cannot be compared to a cure.
Two of my children suffer from type one diabetes and they both lead healthy happy lives. Sure we have tough days and sure there are issues but never ever ever should a life be taken so that we can live without hardship.
An embryo is just as sacred and has the same rights as any living person. No life should be sacrificed so that we can find a cure.
I really don't believe a cure will be found by embryonic stem cells anyway.
