Sanctity Of Life: Oh, Really?

Right on the heel of W’s affirmation for the sanctity of embryo life comes this:

BAGHDAD – The U.S. military announced the deaths of 14 American troops, including five killed Thursday in a single roadside bombing that also killed four Iraqis in Baghdad…

…A rocket-propelled grenade struck a vehicle in northern Baghdad about 12:30 p.m. Thursday, killing one soldier and wounding three others, another statement said.

Four other U.S. soldiers were killed and one was wounded Wednesday when their convoy was struck by a roadside bomb in a western neighborhood in the capital, the military said separately.

Southwest of Baghdad, two U.S. soldiers were killed and four were wounded Wednesday when explosions struck near their vehicle, according to a statement earlier in the day.

Two Marines also were killed Wednesday while conducting combat operations in Anbar province, west of Baghdad, the military said…

Why is it that we have to cover this hypocrisy every single time W speaks about his love for teh embryo? More importantly, why are people not questioning the lack of consistency between his claim of every life being sacred while our adult soldiers and Iraqi citizens caught in the crossfire (i.e. proven existing life forms) are getting killed left and right on a daily basis? Sure, he can talk a good game about vetoing legislation that would deliberately destroy human life (even though the facts state otherwise), but it’s infinity-plus-one more times revolting for him to continue a policy that does that very thing: deliberately destroy human life.

Oh, there are plenty of people who do get it, like us Shakers. Unfortunately, there are still a bunch who don’t. And they vote.

    While the term “embryo” is a general term referring to all of the stages of development between zygote (a single fertilized egg) and fetus. “Embryonic” Stem cells come from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst which is a bundle of approx 150 cells about the size of a grain of sand that develops a few days after an egg is fertilized and before the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall.

  2. The (viable)embryos he’s talking about are the ones at the fertility clinics that would be used for stem cell research, but Bushco would rather they be flushed down the sink.
