Obama’s stem cell diktat

It is impossible to “make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology” while simultaneously ruling out funding for human cloning because it is “profoundly wrong.” But apparently not for Obama.

Clearly, the president did not remove ideology from the discussion. He simply moved the line. Whereas the destruction of potential human life was the line not to be crossed, now it is “the use of cloning for human reproduction.” Why is the latter more “profoundly wrong” than the former? Obama offers no reason. He simply believes it is. The deep reflection evident in Bush’s speech is entirely missing from Obama’s. His is a declaration of personal belief, not an exercise of painstaking statesmanship.
