Bush’s Embryos at Risk in Beirut

With the power down to 12 hours a day in Beirut, the American University Hospital in Beirut must run their emergency generators to keep embryos frozen. The generators need fuel to continue operating but there are considerable barriers to getting fuel delivered to and moved around Lebanon.

Thanks to American funded planes and munitions, the embryos are at risk. Recall President Bush’s words at his veto of Stem Cell legislation.

Each of these human embryos is a unique human life with inherent dignity and matchless value.

If this bill would have become law, American taxpayers would, for the first time in our history, be compelled to fund the deliberate destruction of human embryos. And I'm not going to allow it.

Domestically President Bush would not allow it, but internationally his policies do. Bush’s knuckle dragging on a cease fire ensures the Israeli destruction machine continues to devastate Lebanon.

What was the state of reproductive technology twenty years ago? As an Israeli military chief stated that as a goal, how will the frozen embryos President Bush loves so dearly fare?
On July 12th Israel's chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz, told Israel's Channel 10, "If the soldiers are not returned, we will turn Lebanon's clock back 20 years.

For a frozen embryo does that mean deliberate destruction? And who’s funding and supporting the Israeli war machine? That would be President Bush. I would call him our Liar in Chief but he may perform a daring rescue of the life he holds so dear. We will have to wait in this case to see if his words match his actions.
