Politicians have a duty to stop embryo research


AT THIS stage the Government needs all the support it can get and from whatever quarter. Here's how it can win some support from the still significant bloc of pro-life voters in this country: pass a law banning embryo research. If it won't do it, then Fine Gael should go after that bloc by putting its own human life protection Bill before the Oireachtas.

As it is, Senator Ronan Mullen will be proposing his own Bill. That should make it easy for both the Government and the opposition. All they have to do is support it. If they don't support it, it will be very interesting to see what reasons they advance for such a stance.
