Barack “Two Face” Obama Signs Legislation Banning Fed Funds For ESCs

On Monday, The One signed legislation reversing the Evil!!!!! Boooooosh’s (I spend too much time at the DU) ban on using federal funds for embryonic stem cell research, saying he would put “sound science over politics,” and liberals/progressives/surrender monkeys rejoiced. But, they might want to hold off finishing the mary jane brownies and grape kool aid

On Wednesday, only two days after he lifted President Bush’s executive order banning federal funding of stem cell research that requires the destruction of human embryos, President Barack Obama signed a law that explicilty bans federal funding of any “research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death.”

The provision was buried in the 465-page omnibus appropriations bill that Obama signed Wednesday. Known as the Dickey-Wicker amendment, it has been included in the annual appropriations bill for the Department of Health and Human Services every fiscal year since 1996.

The amendment says, in part: “None of the funds made available in this Act may be used for—(1) the creation of a human embryo or embryos for research purposes; or (2) research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death.”

Found in Section 509 of Title V of the omnibus bill (at page 280 of the 465-page document), the federal funding ban not only prohibits the government from providing tax dollars to support research that kills or risks injury to a human embryo, it also mandates that the government use an all-inclusive definition of “human embryo” that encompasses any nascent human life from the moment that life comes into being, even if created in a laboratory through cloning, in vitro fertilization or any other means.

And the liberals were sore afraid and seething. And The Messiah said “fear not, for I will screw you over surely worse during the rest of my term. Remember, this occured on day 51!”

And before libs go off on how it is such a shame that we can’t destroy human embryos for worthless research now, remember, private research centers can still do the research, they just pretty much don’t bother, since ESCs have proven virtually worthless, since their affects tend to be just as bad or worse then the original issue they were created to solve.
