Tell Congress: Support Stem Cell Research
More than 5 long years into President Bush's short-sighted, cruel policy
restricting stem cell research, America once again has the chance to reverse it
-- and strike a blow for hope.
On January 11, 2007, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 3, a bill
to overturn President Bush's restrictions. The Senate is expected to vote
shortly thereafter. Although stem cell research has bipartisan support,
"pro-death" activists are working hard to torpedo this bill, and take hope away
from millions of Americans. Please write your members of Congress today, and ask
them to support this bill:
Because President Bush may veto it, it is critical that we not only pass it
-- but that we reach the 2/3 majority necessary to override the veto. Every vote
counts -- and every email from you counts. So write your members today, tell
them to support H.R. 3, and tell your friends to do the same:
Keep fighting -- the lives of millions of Americans depend on it.

I agree with stem cell research and all its benefits, so best of luck to America in passing the bill! I would like to point out however, that this new path must be seriously regulated. I've read horrific articles about mothers in Ukraine whose babies are taken away from them at birth by the corrupt hospital staff so that the (killed) babies can be sold to scientists in Britain for stem cell research. Some women are even trafficked by force and impregnated constantly to fuel the demand for fetuses. Others agree to abortions in exchange for money out of necessity. Let's do this right so that poor women in third world countries do not get forced into fetal farming...which sounds obscene but is already happening.
I think that legalizing this new technology will actually help regulate the research, so that it is in the public's view and illegal paths like trafficking fetuses are more difficult to take.
