Real Hope for Stem-Cell Research

Stem-cell research has been a hot-button issue for some time now. To the chagrin of pro-lifers, high-profile Hollywood celebrities have lobbied for an increase in taxpayer-funded destructive embryonic stem-cell research. Even former first lady Nancy Reagan made a pitch for the same. Just a few weeks ago, Congress approved legislation that would have succumbed to such pressure. Nevertheless, President George W. Bush – pro-life himself – wisely vetoed the legislation, saying the measure "would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others" and "crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect."
