The NJ RTL is a Non-Sectarian/non-partisan organization but off the record, they were aghast, to say the least when they found out that Gov. McGreevey was going to sign the bill on the Lord's day, Sunday, during advent, on the Sunday before Christmas; FYI the Governor ran on an Irish Catholic platform promoting his family values with his Nurse Mother and Marine Corps/Drill Instructor Father. Freepers from all states are encouraged to call the Governor, once cloning starts here, other states are sure to follow.

The New Jersey State Legislature has narrowly passed the most extreme and ethically flawed pro-cloning legislation in the country, which has been sent to Governor McGreevey for his consideration.  In response, three of New Jersey’s U.S. Representatives – Chris Smith (R-Hamilton), Mike Ferguson (R-Warren), and Scott Garrett (R-Wantage) made the following statement urging the Governor to carefully and soberly reconsider the full legal and moral ramifications of signing this unprecedented proposal into law.

“We urge the Governor take a step back from a historic and troubling threshold that ought not be crossed lightly.

“The bill being considered for signature on McGreevey’s desk would not only allow the cloning of human beings for research purposes, but would also allow cloned human embryos to be implanted into a woman’s womb, allow the cloned human to develop to the fetal stage, and then use this human child for research where he or she could be killed for their ‘spare parts.’

“This legislation will launch New Jersey blindly into the vanguard of terrible human rights violations and grisly human experimentation.  We are literally facing the prospect of creating a human clone, and implanting this cloned baby into a woman’s womb.  Once this happens, nothing can stop the world’s first human clone from being born and starting a horrible new era of human history.

“As advocates for increased funding to support life-affirming biomedical research, we fully understand the drive to cure debilitating diseases and to improve health care for those who are suffering.  But allowing human fetus farms for research is not an ethical or practical solution.

“Rather, the priority should be to fund the most ethical and the most promising avenues of research – adult stem cell research – which could find cures that will not exploit human life and incite controversy.  Each dollar that goes toward projects that clone humans and destroy human life at its earliest stage of development takes away from ethical research that is moving forward at an incredible rate and that does not have the ethical baggage attached to human cloning.

“Furthermore, proponents of human cloning used a lame duck session to jam through the most extreme legislation in the country.  We commend the significant number of Assembly members who voted against this deeply flawed bill, and we urge the Governor to step back from the brink of a wholly preventable disaster.

“The use of adult stem cell and cord blood stem cell research is ethical and successful. Adult stem cells are already being used to successfully treat humans suffering from cancers, autoimmune diseases, anemias, immunodeficiencies, bone and cartilage deformities, corneal scarring, stroke, heart damage, Parkinson’s, and skin damage.

“Adult and cord blood stem cells are able to generate virtually all tissue types; they can multiply almost indefinitely to be used for treatment; they have proven successful in laboratory culture and in animal models; and they have the ability to find and repair damage.  Unlike embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells do not cause tumors, and they do not have the problem of transplant rejection.

Due to the fact that Sen. Dick Codey's Father Died, the Bill signing for this Sunday is postponed, there is still time to call, fax and e-mail Governor McGreevey (do all three) and request that he do not sign the bill! Renewed push for NJ Clone & Kill Bill, A2840/S1909. Immediate Action Needed!!!
