Maryland Bishops Step Up Again!

Gov. Erlich, of Maryland, is planning on signing a bill that would allow funding for embryonic stem cell research in the state. The three MD bishops, Cardinal Keeler (Baltimore), Cardinal McCarrick (Washington), and Bishop Saltarelli (Wilmington) all signed a joint letter condeming the action:

"Enactment of this legislation means that tax dollars will be used to pay for the destruction of innocent human life," says a letter signed by the three clerics. "Human life is not to be treated as a commodity, as a raw material in science experiments. Taking innocent human life is always a great evil, regardless of whether society as a whole stands to benefit."

Thank you your Eminences and your Excellency.
