23 Jun Obama scraps President's Bioethics Council after forcing embryonic tax-funding
Editor’s Note: This is a press release and WTN is politically neutral and strives to present opposing views.
The President’s Council on Bioethics is no more. With a one-day notice, the members were told in a letter from the President that their services were no longer required. Pack up, get out. Forget the fact that they had a couple of interesting reports coming out soon, one more meeting, and that the Council’s tenure would expire come this September.
Peter Lawler, member of the now-defunct Council, notes that he is reassured when the letter states that “President Obama recognizes the value of having a commission composed of experts on bioethical issues to provide objective and non-ideological advice to his Administration.”
