Right Wing rising against President Obama as 2009 Commencement Speaker at Notre Dame (4576 hits)


President Obama was chosen to be the 2009 Commencement Speaker at the
University of Notre Dame's graduation ceremony. However, right-wing
groups have been trying to rally support against this selection. The
University has chosen to recognize the President's efforts to bring the
country together and promote issues such as economic recovery, reforming
health care, and environmental action (among others).

Hopefully, he will breeze through this controversy. I think he will. After all his Irish roots may help as well as his new Ambassador to Ireland, Dan Rooney owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Stem cell's resisters insist that the harvesting (I hate that word, it sounds evil when referring to human beings) of these cells ONLY come from aborted fetuses. The cells taken from placenta or afterbirth of the mother. The ethics that underpins this conundrum is the unsettled issue of abortion. Capitalism drives the use of it from aborted fetuses, morality and religion oppose.

As for the use of this issue to oppose the President, I agree though I would not label this instance as knee jerk so much, but an issue that is a fundamental debate between the Republicans and Democrats.

I feel good on this one, they won't stop him.
