Kind of under one address the issue of the slippery slope that there -- those against his keep talk about the president dress that today and here's what he said.
I can also problems that we will never undertake this research lightly.
We will support it only when it is both scientifically worked great and responsibly conduct.
We will develop strict guidelines which we will rigorously enforce because we cannot ever.
Tolerate misuse or abuse and we will ensure that our government never opens the door to the use of cloning.
For human reproduction.
It is dangerous profoundly wrong and has no place in our society or an exercise -- wrong their country -- Opted to challenge that this same president that with a he would be built before we vote on the same president had to veto earmarks this.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- All and -- it is it what they'll understand how politicians were kind of this line.
Outlook we had he -- -- and thankfully our equipment is that I think we have talented and last year -- -- -- -- their parents AIG Fannie that's horrible stop.
We didn't so he doesn't mean -- he means he wants he is a for cloning.
I don't know that but what I do -- it.
Government has a tendency to move much further than what they initially set out to do.
But we don't you legislators you know I have -- you.
-- that -- that this this government.
Repeatedly to actually voted in the House of Representatives that they don't we.
Being -- party.
There -- 100%.
Agreement in the House of Representatives has -- there is -- slippery slope people understand the limits.
A -- -- use that very specific purpose.
Think you're gonna find disagreement.
On the issue -- clothing and garlic.
Darlington it didn't that that the science is you have an economic.
If you -- the American people.
-- a politician says what did you think there always is that we've seen publicly available where -- about it that's what that's what you need protect.
We can't trust until we -- -- your legislators on different Jordan to do the right thing in and put the right restrictions on something like we can't trust you to do them.
It's it's it's part of the American system that you should not.
The we have checks and balances.
Lineup -- -- the -- it because government rather than worry -- that it hasn't happened yet are.
Rather than worry about serving as an event the slippery slope argument is always something that may or may never happen during the -- why not use it to the best advantage now.
And almost every scientist agrees that this is the way to go.
That is not true and indicated that he decided to alternately dot -- and and the problem I don't yes technique.
It's -- but that's not been like congresswomen go ahead.
As the president said that the date.
It's important that we make scientific decisions based on pac -- Not ideology.
And let represented abrupt what you're saying is that we should abandon science and and well good and -- and I don't know the American people.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The fax from our side deposit came with a couple adopted built in your saying -- American taxpaying -- we're gonna use your tax dollars.
To now support the destruction of the.
Human -- -- -- saying that it had alzheimer's and parkinson's and spinal injuries can almost always can all only be solved.
Perhaps if we look at.
And embryonic stem cells -- transform -- of nature that adult stem cells don't have.
Would you deny people like representative Jim Langevin of Rhode Island paralyzed for 25 years who says he supports is what are you -- what do you tell somebody like that.
Two things one -- -- and keep that perhaps to use it is what I excited for the ITF technique has -- all the -- And that and destroy human embryo.
The key factors here American taxpayers are now open it up because.
Private dollar can be used but it there was never prohibition if it is that -- that you -- it if you this technique it's so important.
Why is that the private capital out they're going to get to make it happen.
-- -- -- -- -- Don't use taxpayer dollars consummate -- -- is that a fair argument that absolutely not a recognized the.
Major technological scientific advances the -- that supported by private hands.
We think the brain drain in our country where some of the best scientists I actually leaving and going to places.
We're -- conduct this kind apparently there's an epic and epic -- the perfect.
Besides -- to a patent working behind our attendance certainly good that majority.
Believe that we can continue to do embryonic stems partly it's the most promising and the most immediate.
All right well listen -- it's it progress is happening anyway congressman Jordan.
What are you gonna do about this obviously this is the way things ago and we have a democratic house senate president.
You can continue to fight -- -- we'll continue to speak because we had a press conference last week -- bi partisan Republican members three Republicans three Democrats stood there and said.
We we we a 181 members of the -- services signed a letter to the speaker saying don't.
The pro life writers want a good deal with this issue 22 of them don't take those are out of the appropriations bill when we -- the 2000.
Let me ask you that -- -- -- bipartisan moderate less than 32 -- not -- it is shown that these embryonic cells can help.
Move toward a cure for parkinson's spinal injuries alzheimer's will you reverse your position.
Allen will you reverse your position that Alan the point that very -- simple yes -- -- partially -- insect.
Here's the point.
The research can be done right now with -- dollar bet that.
A moment the answer that you would never -- does not up.
Yeah all right we we unfortunately got to run congresswoman to cast he and congressman George and I thank you -- very -- -- -- -- right thanks so much agreement on both -- --
