Embryo's Are People Too!!!!

President Bush readied the first veto of his presidency Wednesday to stop legislation easing limits on federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research.

Bush planned to sign a veto message Wednesday afternoon without any ceremony or photographers to record the historic moment. ''He doesn't feel it's appropriate,'' White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

But the president was to speak about the issue later in the White House East Room, surrounded by 18 families who ''adopted'' frozen embryos that were not used by other couples, and then used those leftover embryos to have children. ''The message there is that an embryo can create a human being,'' Snow said.

While both the GOP-run House and Senate defied Bush in passing the measure to expand federally funded embryonic stem research, supporters do not appear to have the two-thirds vote margin needed to override such a veto.

But why hasn't the President Expanded the Tax Code to recognize the TaxWriteOffedNeff Of EmbryoPerKin?

Or is there some Super Sinister Sub Plot here, that some persons are more Person Persons than other persons???
