"I'm very concerned about cloning," the president said. "I worry about a world in which cloning becomes accepted."

Since when did cloning have to do with stem cell research? :lookaround:

"I made very clear to Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayer's money, to promote science which destroys life in order to save life — I'm against that," Bush said. "Therefore, if the bill does that, I would veto it."
Bush began the day at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast where he was cheered for urging people to "pray that America uses the gift of freedom to build a culture of life."

So basically Bush is disregarding what the country thinks is right for his own personal beliefs? Seperation of church and state would be nice... :mad:

Bush is probably one of my most unfavorite presidents after studying most of them. Bush is like a bunch of circles and a square it's like "What?". Some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth, and even more what he does, just confuses me.

I heard a Scientist talking about it and he said if this gets abused, cloning a human is very possible. So there IS some concern here.

Hey, he is the presient, he has his own views. He is not some puttet. The same goes for the congressmen. Everyone has free will, and having relgion help with it is fine. I think that they need to worry about more important things like the economy. Rember: if 2/3rd's vote yes, it will passed over his veto;)

If that is true, than we have nothing to be worried about, since the majority of congress (republicans AND democrats) agreed to pass it. :beer:

I see that you fail to grasp the basic concept of democracy. Bush was elected by the people, that means that he's supposed to represent the people. His religious beliefs (or his personal opinion for that matter) should not have anything at all to do with important decisions like this.

Currently the most advanced and efficient form of creating stem cells comes from a form of cloning. An ova is taken, its gentic contents removed and new ones inserted from a specific organ of the body. After 4-5 days, its inner cells are harvested and processed to create stem cells (which are genitically identical to the donor, resulting in a much lower chance of rejection). Not necessarily true cloning, but still a part of the cloning process. [color=black]Separation of the church and state means that the church and state are in no ways legally or financially bound, exert no control over one another and that the state will not force its people to worship any religion. Morals do not fall under separation of church and state. A religion may advocate certain morals, but it is the people that choose which morals and issues that they want to see enforced by choosing a candidate which they believe best reflects them. If morals and issues were prohibited by the separation of church and state, it would mean that any issue advocated by a religious group would automatically be invalidated.[/color]
