Let's get back to what Obama said (and did).
"I believe we have been given the capacity and will to pursue this research -- and the humanity and conscience to do so responsibly."This is curious. I'm not sure what science he is talking about, or what he means by "conscience".
The science clearly says:
- A new human life is created at conception (the embryo)
- ESCR destroys the embryo
What conscience can allow the destruction of human life? Certainly not one guided by God ("thou shall not commit murder"). Perhaps one seared, as by a hot iron (1 Tim 4:2).
