Stem Cell Research: the Bush don't fund, don't ban policy

Michael Sanders in the Boston Globe discusses the inconsistent moral position—“don’t fund, don’t ban”—President Bush has taken on stem cell research. It is short and worth the read no matter where you stand on the issue.

President Bush takes many inconsistent moral stances. Peter Singer did a good job of analyzing them in his The President of Good and Evil. Each time the President tries to take the moral high ground, you get a whiff of hypocrisy or inconsistency. Of course, people are hypocritical and inconsistent at times. Some care about it. The President never seems to care.

He is a man who is difficult to take seriously.
