How can anyone take Bush's position on abortion and/or stem cell research seriously? Tony Snow recently stated that Bush "thinks murder is wrong." Yes, in the context of stem cell research Snow used the word "murder."

Yet, apparently it's OK for such "murder" to occur in private industry, just as long as it's not receiving any federal funding. Huh? If it's murder, it should be wrong and condemned no matter what -- why allow exclusions? Private citizens cannot get away with murder, so why is it private companies are allowed to....?

Also, I've asked this question many times (and it would be nice to see a reporter ask it for a change) but if taking the life of the unborn is "murder" then why did Bush endorse pro-choice Specter over pro-life Toomey in the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race in 2004? Did Bush actually choose politics over siding against "murder"?
