Obama lifts ban on embryonic stem cell research

I feel sad at President's Obama's announcement today. I agree with the Illinois Family Institute which issued this statement in response:

"The Illinois Family Institute (IFI) absolutely supports adult and umbilical cord stem cell research. We oppose, however, embryonic stem cell research because it destroys human life. Moreover, IFI believes that in this economic climate, it is foolish to spend tax dollars for controversial and unproven research."Every human life begins as an embryo. Each embryo has unique human DNA. It is the first stage of human development. This fact should not be overlooked in favor of any potential scientific advancement. Potential human life should never be sacrificed in the name of a potential medical cure.
