Bush: Supports Death Penalty for Criminals because it Saves Lives; Opposes Science that Saves lives if it destroys life!
"I made [it] very clear to the Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayers' money, to promote science which destroys life in order to save life, I'm against that," Bush told reporters. "Therefore if the bill does that, I will veto it."

On March 2, 2000, in a GOP debate in Los Angeles, President Bush explained his enthusiastic support of the death penalty:
I support the death penalty because I believe when the death penalty is administered surely, swiftly and justly, it will save lives.So I guess saving lives is important to this President. Sort of. Except, he finds it more important to save the "lives" of clusters of cells that are scheduled to be destroyed, whose "parents" have consented that they be donated to Science.
I am so proud of him.
Who cares about Diabetes, Alzheimer's Disease, Lou Gehrig's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and Spinal Cord Injuries. What a bunch of cry-babies.
We can extend the lives of frozen eight cell clumps of embryonic tissue for a few moments longer until they thaw to death anyhow.
What is wrong with America? When will common sense and decency return to Washington? When will we elect a President that can understand a little basic ethics?
America needs new leadership in Washington! I supported John Kerry for President in 2004 and I am supporting him for 2008 as long as he is interested in the job!
