EUROPEAN UNION PUSHING IRELAND TO FUND DESTRUCTIVE RESEARCH ON EMBRYOS
DUBLIN, June 7, 2002 (LSN.ca) - Dana Rosemary Scallon, the pro-life Member of the Eupropean Parliament from Ireland, has warned that the European Union is putting pressure on the Irish Government to support funding for destructive research on human embryos. The Irish Times reports that Dana has revealed that people at the highest level in Bertie Ahern's government are being pushed to assist the use of EU money for experimentation with embryos.
Dana said Ireland must vote in the coming weeks to block their participation in the embryo research programme. She cautioned against caving in to EU bullying.
