FOR THOSE GROUP LEADERS AND MEMBERS OF CARE 2 INTERESTED IN "FORCING" FRIST TO FACE THE ISSUE IN THE SENATE AND "FUND" STEM CELL RESEARCH, PLEASE SIGN THIS MOST IMPORTANT LETTER TO HIM, THEN "PLEASE PASS ALONG TO YOUR GROUPS AND ALL THOSE INTERESTED FRIENDS YOU CAN MUSTER UP." THANKS FOR YOUR HELP ON THIS MOST IMPORTANT ACTIVISTS' ACTION!!!!
The Following is a Paid message:
DefCon is an online organization dedicated to confronting the growing influence of the religious right. DefCon aggressively fights the religious right's assault on personal freedom and scientific progress, including their efforts to cripple stem cell research. I hope you'll take a moment to take action on our latest campaign.
|Stem cell research could benefit millions of Americans, but the Senate is putting the interests of the religious right above your health. |
Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Cancer, Parkinson's, Heart disease......
These are just a few of the many medical conditions that scientists believe stem cell research could treat or even cure. The religious right is opposed to this life saving research. And they are holding our health hostage.
Here's what's happening:
On May 24, 2005, the U.S. House of Representatives defied Tom DeLay, the White House and the religious right, passing legislation that increased public funding for stem cell research.
A year later, despite overwhelming public support and a bi-partisan coalition of senators, Majority Leader Bill Frist refuses to hold a vote in the Senate, caving instead to the religious right.
Take action and demand that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist - Doctor Frist - stops pandering to the religious right and allows a vote on this crucial legislation today. Click here!
Jessica, Clark and the rest of the DefCon Team!
P.S. If you have a story of how stem cell treatment could impact you or someone you love, send it to us! Stories like yours can put the pressure on legislators to stop pandering to the religious right and give up on their opposition to this vital research.
