Illinois Senator Durbin deepens his disgrace

BREITBART.COM - Stem Cell Bill Expected to Force Bush Veto
"The Senate moved Tuesday toward sending a bill expanding federal funding of embryonic stem cell research to President Bush, who has promised a swift veto -his first..."
"This is a vote that millions of Americans are watching," said Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill. "They can't understand why America for the last five years has shut down medical research that promises hope."

Senator, You are well aware that embryonic stem cell research is legal and aggressively being pursued by numerous researchers in the United States. Today's vote in the Senate does not concern whether such research will be permitted, but only whether it will be supported by public funds. Your statement that "America... has shut down medical research that promises hope" is a misrepresentation and a lie. It's all the more disgusting because of Your willingness to treat embryonic human beings not as unique human beings, endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, but as raw material to be exploited. To You, their highest value lies not in their innate personhood or even their potential to enjoy childhood and a productive adulthood. No, they are of more use to You as fodder for science, and as coins to be spent in furthering Your political career.

You clearly see nothing wrong with sacrificing the vulnerable and defenseless for the sake of the powerful.

The spirit of Nazism and statism live on in You and all politicians who prize political power above the defense of the defenseless.

You, sir, have again disgraced Your position as senator.
