Even now researchers are exploring alternative sources of stem cells, such as adult bone marrow and umbilical cord blood, as well as different ethical ways of getting the same kind of cells now taken from embryos without violating human life or dignity.

I want to thank Nightlight Christian Adoptions for their good work. Nightlight’s embryo adoption program has now matched over 200 biological parents with about 140 adoptive families, resulting in the birth of 81 children so far, with more on the way.
The children here today remind us that there is no such thing as a spare embryo. Every embryo is unique and genetically complete, like every other human being. And each of us started out our life this way. These lives are not raw material to be exploited, but gifts. And I commend each of the families here today for accepting the gift of these children and offering them the gift of your love.
Thank you for coming today. By the way, we’re having a little birthday gathering just in a second for Tanner and Noelle. You all are invited to partake in a little birthday cake. In the meantime, may God bless you and your families, and may God continue to bless our country. Thank you.
