On Wednesday, President Bush for the second time vetoed legislation that would allow federal funding for new embryonic stem cell research.
"If this legislation became law, it would compel American taxpayers for the first time in our history to support the deliberate destruction of human embryos," Bush said. "I made it clear to Congress and to the American people that I will not allow our nation to cross this moral line."
This seems very hypocritical to me. As long as Americans have been required to pay taxes, they have been compelled to support the deliberate destruction of human adults in warfare.
