President Bush will not have the final say on this. Already, members of Congress are promising to introduce legislation to broaden the use of stem cells. Keep in mind that stem cells dont vote, but individuals do. Democrats will use this to make Bush appear insensitive. What if the polls show that a majority wants fewer restrictions? Will morals trump politics? Not after a moral compromise has been made, as it already has.
Slippery slopes get slippery for a reason. When there is no foundation, there is nothing for us to hold onto.
