Needless, illegal taxpayer funding of embryo-destructive research stands

Attorney sound bite:  Steven H. Aden

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to review Sherley v. Sebelius, a lawsuit that challenged the Obama administration’s illegal funding of embryo-destructive research:

“Americans should not be forced to pay for experiments that destroy human life, have produced no real-world treatments, and violate federal law--especially in burdened fiscal times like these. Congress designed a law to ensure that Americans don’t pay any more precious taxpayer dollars for needless research made irrelevant by adult stem cell and other research. That law is clear, and we had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would uphold its clear intent.”

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys together with Samuel B. Casey of the Jubilee Campaign’s Law of Life Project and Tom Hungar of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, LLP, litigated the case against the Obama administration.
