Washington, DC - U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, R-Howard, issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s executive order to that will allow federally funded research that involves the destruction of human embryos:

“I am disappointed that the President felt the need to go down this path, when there has been great success and medical advancement in researching adult stem cells. In fact, in just the past few years, scientist have found that skin cells also hold great promise – all without the destruction of human life. Unfortunately, this is the second time in as many months that the President has sided against the unborn, and deemed it appropriate to use tax payer dollars for the destruction of human embryos and overseas abortions.”
