White House Clarifies Position on Stem Cells

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow apologized yesterday for this comment he made last week: "The president believes strongly that for the purpose of research it's inappropriate for the federal government to finance something that many people consider murder. He's one of them."

Evidently he meant to say that the president believes strongly that for the purpose of research it's inappropriate for the federal government to finance something the many people consider to be the destruction of human life. And Bush is one of them.

I'm glad we got that cleared up. I was worried there for a bit that the White House was taking an extreme position.

Side-Note: Does the funding argument sound familiar?
