WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Today's vote by the U.S. House of Representatives to spend tax dollars on destroying human embryos does not give hope that this Congress will end wasteful and immoral spending," said Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America (CWA).
"Allowing unethical research that kills small human beings is apparently not enough for some. They insist that all Americans must be complicit by paying for it, even though superior alternatives – which are ethical and effective – not only exist but are already treating patients. Since ethical alternatives exist, this bill is about playing politics, not helping patients."
The bill will now go to the Senate for consideration.
"We hope the Senate will show a more vigilant regard for life and not fall prey to the manipulations and falsehoods extended by those who want to strip human rights from an entire class of human beings," said Wendy Wright.
Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
