The Politicization of Life and Death


While President Bush stalls diplomatic efforts to give Israel time to disintegrate Lebanon in its conflict with Hezbollah, today he will veto stem cell research to save the lives of those tiny cells.

“Sometimes it requires tragic situations to help bring clarity in the international community.” – President Bush on the Israeli – Hezbollah conflict

“Since that little embryo doesn’t have a pair of eyes and a hair color… that allows us then to destroy that life.” – Senator Rick Santorum expressing the Far Right Christian party line on stem cell research

The real tragedy of America’s descent and a world in crisis is the horrific hypocrisy behind the politicization of life and death.
