Obama Talks Embryonic Stem Cell Research at Notre Dame


During his graduation speech to the class of 2009 at the University of Notre Dame, President Barack Obama emphasized the use of embryonic stem cell research for juvenile diabetes. During part of President Obama’s commencement speech focusing on the political and cultural disagreements Notre Dame students will encounter as they go into life, Barack Obama approached the controversial topic of stem cell research.

“Those who speak out against stem cell research may be rooted in admirable conviction about the sacredness of life, but so are the parents of a child with juvenile diabetes who are convinced that their son’s or daughter’s hardships can be relieved,” he said.

Obama’s speech was met with applause at Notre Dame, although a number of protesters awaited outside the building, protesting the use of embryonic stem cells.
