Discovery Fellow at White House Non-signing

Wesley J. Smith (seen here with White House press secretary Tony Snow) was invited to the West Wing yesterday to witness the President's veto of the embryonic stem cell bill.

Smith, a Discovery senior fellow on bioethics issues, writes frequently for various magazines and newspapers, including The Weekly Standard and National Review Online, is promoting the theme of the unique importance of human life--of "human exceptionalism". People are not like other animals spiritually, morally or even physically.

Smith's blog, linked by Discovery (see here), today carries the news of breakthroughs in adult stem cell medicine. The mainstream media have been wantonly obtuse about the the fact that the opponents of providing new federal funds and embryonic stem cells for research are in favor of other stem cell research, that, in fact, is far more promising anyhow.
