During Q&A at the February 6th House Democratic Retreat, President Obama renewed his pledge to fund embryo-destructive stem cell research even though promising alternatives exist. “I guarantee you that we will sign an executive order for stem cells. . . . God gave us power to make smart decisions, to cure diseases, to alleviate suffering,” he said .

Earlier in the week, during the National Prayer Breakfast, Obama said : “But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there . . . is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.”

How quickly we forget.
