In an otherwise good piece condemning President Obama for his executive order authorizing taxpayer funding for embryonic stem cell research last week, columnist Charles Krauthammer got one thing wrong:
Obama's address was morally unserious in the extreme. ... Yet ... he went on to declare that he would never open the door to the "use of cloning for human reproduction."
Does he not think that a cloned human would be of extraordinary scientific interest? And yet he banned it.
On the contrary, Obama did not....
Had Obama meant he blanketly opposed cloning, he would have said he opposed cloning, period. But he added that tag, "for human reproduction."...
I know Obama was parsing. While he says he opposes birthing human clones, Obama supports growing human clones to kill for research.
I know because I was in Springfield lobbying for the opposition in 2003 when Obama as IL state senator sponsored the Stem Cell Research Act along with five other hard-left liberals, and it included authorization to experimentally clone and kill....
Continue reading my column today, "State Sen. Obama sponsored 'clone and kill' bill," at WorldNetDaily.com.
As long as we can't see it, as long as it doesn't "seem" human to us based on our feelings and senses, we can't POSSIBLY consider it cloning.

Given the language of the IL bill, and compared to Bill Clinton's strange and illogical utterances, there's no doubt in my mind that there's a deliberate deceptive campaign being waged.
If I had to guess the ultimate long play here - it would be scientific immortality.Posted by: Chris Arsenault at March 18, 2009 8:56 AM
And deception is what the DEVIL has done since the very beginning of time.Posted by: LizFromNebraska at March 18, 2009 10:14 AM
And the serpent said to the woman, "You surely shall not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be LIKE GOD, knowing good and evil." (Gen. 3:4-5) But Adam and Eve were already like God. The irony is that by eating the forbidden fruit--and trying to usurp God's authority--they lost much or all of the likeness, at least in righteousness, holiness, and knowledge. Since God still values human beings for their original likeness to Himself, He prohibits murder. See Genesis 9.Posted by: Jon at March 18, 2009 12:44 PM
