Governor Matt Blunt rejects suggestions by Missouri Right to Life that he can no longer be considered pro-life. Missouri Right to Life has withdrawn its endorsement of the governor, because he endorses stem cell research, including Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer. Blunt says his stance shouldn’t be a surprise to Missouri Right to Life because he has always supported this kind of research. Blunt disagrees with Missouri Right to Life that SCNT destroys life. He says that since no fertilization of a human egg takes place, it cannot be considered a destruction of life. Missouri Right to Life insists the process creates a human life that should not be destroyed for any reason.
