After the Democrat-led Senate passed new legislation seeking to allow federal funding for cutting-edge embryonic stem cell research, a peeved President Bush announced that he would veto yet another bill.
"These embryos are human beings and must be protected. I will not support a bill that requires taxpayers to fund the destruction of human life," he said.
He added, "The Democrats are trying to withhold money from our brave troops in Iraq, yet they want to send defenseless human beings out to battle cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The Democrats don't care about our troops or our embryos. That's why I'm killing both bills."
