Rushing to Use Govt. Money to Kill Embryos

This piece points out that a number of pro-life Democrats are going to have a "rough ride" over the Pelosi-backed initiative to rush more government money into embryonic stem cell research.

One has to ask -- what's the hurry to get government money into an area of research that's already being pursued assiduously by the private section . . . especially when new research suggests that the destruction of embryos isn't even necessary to obtain the stem cells?

Especially given that embryonic stem cells so far have yielded little of value -- while the use of adult stem cells have produced much more -- forces one to suspect that the Democratic haste to vote to destroy embryos is less about finding cures to dread diseases, and more about the life/abortion issue.
