U.S. Judge Rules Against Obama’s Embryonic Stem Cell Policy. Judge Lamberth writes "(embryonic stem cell) research is clearly research in which an embryo is destroyed"



"A federal judge on Monday issued a decision forcing the Obama administration to stop funding embryonic stem cell research with taxpayer funds. The judge ruled the executive order Obama issued allowing such funding contravened a federal law prohibiting taxpayer funding of the destruction of human embryos.U.S. district court Judge Royce Lamberth granted a preliminary injunction against the funding.
Judge Lamberth's ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by stem cell researchers who said the Obama executive order and subsequent funding from the National Institutes of Health violated the Dickey amendment.

Judge Royce Lamberth noted that the imposition of an injunction required that those challenging the government's funding demonstrate a substantial likelihood of success on the merits for their arguments. Apparently, they succeeded.
"(Embryonic stem cell) research is clearly research in which an embryo is destroyed," Lamberth wrote in the 15-page ruling

The Court noted, "Embryonic stem cell (ESC) research necessarily depends upon the destruction of a human embryo," and concluded that funding such research violates existing law. 

The Obama administration can try to appeal the decision granting the preliminary injunction or could try to rewrite the guidelines to comply with the law. With the initial decision in place, both sides will likely present arguments about whether the order should be permanently blocked..." For the full LifeNews.Com report click here.

PS – Judge Lamberth who has put the kibosh on some of the Obama administration's plans to obliterate human embryos was appointed by Ronald Reagan.

  1. Wonderful decision Judge Lamberth. Hopefully one day soon all killing of unborn children will STOP. President Obama should visit the site: www.ObamaMustSee.com
    Anyone seeing the truth abortion in this explicit look at the procedures and their results and is not horrified, someone is terribly wrong. America will not reject abortion until America Sees Abortion! Unfortunately, America needed to see abortion in 1973 and then maybe 50,000,000 children would have had their RIGHT TO LIFE!
