WASHINGTON, Mar. 8 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Mr. Obama affirms his status as "The Abortion President," by lifting the federal ban at a White House signing ceremony on Monday, March 9 at 11:00 A.M.
The Christian Defense Coalition will hold a news conference in front of the White House on Monday, March 9 at 11:00 A.M. to discuss lifting the federal ban.
The news conference will be on the Pennsylvania Ave. side of the White House in front of Lafayette Park.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
"President Obama continues to show his disregard for social justice and human rights by lifting the federal ban on the public funding of embryonic stem cell research. Medical science has confirmed that an embryo is human life regardless of President Obama's lack of education and understanding of the issue.
"Mr. Obama has said in the past it is 'above his pay grade' to know when human life begins. I would suggest as part of the billions spent on the stimulus package that the President's salary be raised so he could further his adult education to understand the basic facts of biology and social justice.
"Lifting the ban on the public funding of embryonic stem cell research is a slap in the face to Americans who embrace social justice for all human life especially those members of the faith community. President Obama is once again breaking his campaign promise of building unity and consensus among all groups.
"The President also shows he is living in the past when it comes to stem cell research. With the advances made with new technology and adult stem cells, embryonic stem cell research is both unnecessary and archaic. We invite President Obama to step into the 21st Century of modern medicine and work on innovative, progressive and ethical ways to heal diseases and relieve suffering."
