Obama's support for embryo research makes US citizens pay for killing, Bishop Olmstead says

Catholic World News - March 12, 2009

Writing in his diocesan newspaper The Catholic Sun, Bishop Thomas Olstead of Phoenix, Arizona has said that President Barack Obama's decision to lift federal restrictions on embryonic stem-cell research violates both the right to life and the consciences of citizens. “We U.S. taxpayers will now be forced to pay, whether we wish to or not, for the killing of our youngest brothers and sisters on the dubious hypothesis that their murders might, in the future, benefit others," the bishop said.
