THE WORLD THAT W MADE:

Poll: 57% of Americans Oppose Tax Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research (Steven Ertelt, August 27, 2010, LifeNews.com)

On the week in which a federal judge ruled that President Barack Obama's executive order forcing Americans to pay for embryonic stem cell research with taxpayer funds violates a federal law, a new poll shows a majority of Americans opposed tax-funding the controversial and unproven research.

Only 33% of U.S. voters believe that taxpayer money should be spent on embryonic stem cell research, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans say funding for the research, which has never helped any patients and requires the destruction of human life to facilitate, should be left to the private sector.


If the UR were as smart as people tell him he is, he'd go to school on how W led on this issue.
