Yesterday, the DC Circuit Court reversed an order by federal Judge Royce Lamberth, so that the Obama Administration may proceed with giving federal grants to researchers who want to destroy embryos as part of medical research programs. Their action seems to be a patent contradiction of federal law – which prohibits the use of federal money for such “research”.
While the case is not over, the ruling clearly spells great hope for those who want the government to pursue embryonic stem cell research. Even if Judge Lamberth goes ahead with the trial, finds that Obama is violating congressionally-enacted law, and reinstates the ban on federally funding – the circuit court sent a big signal yesterday that it would reverse him.
That sets up an eventual appeal to the Supreme Court, which may well rule against Obama’s compulsive desire to destroy human embryos.
In the meantime, the American people and federal law will be defied. Most importantly, an unknown number of vulnerable, tiny humans will be destroyed. More of our national soul will be defiled. And money that could be focused on effective research will be squandered.
