Boehner slams Obama on stem cells

That didn’t take long. House Minority Leader John Boehner just released a statement slamming (and I mean slamming) President Obama for lifting the ban on federal funding for stem cell research.

The headline of the press release sums it up: “President’s Embryonic Stem Cell Decision Runs Counter to his Promise to ‘Be a President for All Americans.'”


The gist of Boehner’s response is that Obama is seeking to divide the country on embryonic stem cell research, which, to social conservatives, amounts to the destruction of human life.
