In the President’s remarks introducing his stem-cell policy, he insisted:
[W]e will ensure that our government never opens the door to the use of cloning for human reproduction. It is dangerous, profoundly wrong, and has no place in our society, or any society.

[This Order] is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a political agenda – and that we make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology.
Declaring something “dangerous” and “profoundly wrong” is nothing if not an ideological statement.
