Alright, to prove that I am issue-focused and am not just blindly anti-Obama, this post is about a controversial subject that I agree with the Left on: Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Obama reversed Bush's ban on allowing federal scientific research dollars to go towards embryonic stem cell research. Most of the cells used in this type of research would have otherwise been destroyed anyway and using these types of cells could lead to cures for diabetes, spinal cord injuries, and Alzheimer's. I'm sure we all know someone who has been affected by one of those. I believe that utilizing embryos destined to be destroyed for the purposes of looking for cures for debilitating diseases that plague our society is well worth the cost. With that being said it is also important that we as a country are always careful to weigh the ethical and moral implications of our decisions. Life is our most valuable possession and we must act accordingly.
