Grow a Brain

So U.S. president George Bush has vetoed a bill for federal support of stem cell research. His rationale?
"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Mr. Bush said at a White House event where he was surrounded by 18 families who "adopted" frozen embryos not used by other couples, and then used those embryos to have children.

But, it's perfectly ok to drop bombs on them, though. Bush is also quoted as saying:
"These boys and girls are not spare parts," he said.

Just cannon fodder.
