We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:

Demand a Vote on Lifesaving Research

Target: Senator Bill Frist, Republican Majority Leader
Sponsor: Defcon - Campaign to Defend the Constitution
  • Signatures: 2
  • Goal: 40,000
  • Deadline: Ongoing...
Stem cells are "blank" cells that have the potential to develop into any type of cell in the body -- nerve cells, heart cells, kidney cells. This gives scientists hope that stem cells could one day treat diseases such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer, Parkinson's, and heart disease.
Last May the House of Representatives passed legislation to expand stem cell research. Senate Republican Leader Bill Frist - Doctor Frist - refuses to hold a vote in the Senate, caving instead to the religious right.

This is a rare opportunity for Congress to significantly improve the quality of peoples lives.

It's time for Senator Frist to stop playing politics with our health, and hold a vote on stem cell research. Please demand a vote today!
