Stem-cell research is pro-life
Boston Herald ^ | Monday, April 4, 2005 | John Kerry

Posted on 04/04/2005 5:19:23 PM PDT by Radix

 For everyone, the issue of stem-cell research is deeply personal and fundamentally moral. We each dread getting a call from a doctor with the results of a diagnosis that makes our heart sink, or the day we say goodbye to a loved one.
     I'll never forget a woman I met last fall at a town hall meeting on stem-cell research. She stood up, her frail body shaking, and pleaded for her government to embrace stem-cell research. It was the moral clarity of her message that will stay with me forever.
     ``It's too late for me,'' she said, ``but we need to do this for those who still have hope.''
     It's not too late for 13-year- old Garrett Burgess of Chelmsford, paralyzed at the age of 5, who traveled to all 50 states with his father to make the case for stem-cell research his doctors believe hold the promise that he can one day walk again.
     In Massachusetts, we need to think of this moral challenge as Gov. Mitt Romney [related, bio] decides whether to sign or veto landmark legislation to allow research that holds out hope for millions. It's a question of our values as a state and a people, and these questions should never be answered lightly - but they must be answered.
     More than 100 million Americans suffer from illnesses that one day might be wiped away with stem-cell therapy. Stem cells could replace damaged heart cells or cells destroyed by cancer, offering a new lease on life to those with a diagnosis that once came with a death sentence. Stem cells have the power to slow the loss of a grandmother's memory, calm the hand of an uncle with Parkinson's, save a child from a lifetime of daily insulin shots or permanently lift a best friend from a wheelchair.
     Some of the most pioneering cures and treatments are now right at our fingertips, but because of politics they could remain beyond reach.
     Nationally, America has been losing its lead in science. Our share of industrial patents is down, our share of Nobel prizes is down, our published research is down and the number of doctorates in the sciences is down.
     This is not the way we do things in Massachusetts. We're a state of discovery - a place where innovators and optimists are free to dream and explore. Where government encourages creativity and entrepreneurship instead of stifling it. Where we're always pushing the boundaries of knowledge.
     This hasn't just been a story of scientific imagination, but of political imagination - from leaders at every step who recognized the hope and possibilities of science to save lives.
     And that's why this groundbreaking legislation on stem-cell research must become law. Every day that we wait, more than 3,000 Americans die from diseases that may someday be treatable because of stem-cell research.
     We must make funding for this research a priority. Above all, we must look to the future not with fear, but with the hope and the faith that advances in science will advance our highest ideals.
     Progress has always brought with it the worry that we have gone too far. Some questioned the morality of heart transplants. We heard the same kind of arguments against biotech research that now saves stroke victims and leukemia patients.
     The question is no different on stem-cell research. People of good will and good sense can resolve the ethical issues without stopping lifesaving research. There's already bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate to ban human cloning and allow therapeutic cloning to advance. This issue transcends political labels. That's why Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Nancy Reagan refuse to tie the hands of doctors and oppose restrictions on lifesaving research.
     It should be no different in our state. Massachusetts has long led the country in great discoveries, always upholding the highest standards, ensuring our breakthroughs and our beliefs go hand-in-hand. And when it comes to stem-cell research, policymakers have worked to find common ground and draw strict and appropriate ethical guidelines, and they've succeeded.
     I hope that Romney signs this bill and makes it clear that in Massachusetts, we say yes to knowledge, yes to discovery and yes to leading a new era of hope for all.

Gee...you don't suppose he's trying to confuse people on this issue, do you?

NO ONE is against "stem cell" research, Monsieur.

What we oppose is embroynic stem cell research, also known as clone & kill. It is immoral to create a human life in order to kill it for any reason.

Yes, Stem Cell Research is pro life. Bone Marrow, Umbilical cord, and even stem cells taken from the nose have done wonderful things.

Senator Kerry isn't trying to mislead people is he? I embrace stem cell research!

Did he mention embryonic stem cell research, the only stem cells that haven't brought any medical advances? Embryonic stem cells, the research that private companies won't fund. Europe has been pumping money into embryonic stem cell research with no sucessful results. Maybe, we should redirect funds to avenues of stem cell research that actually work instead of standing around all day saying that embryonic stem cells have potential. Potential to do what? How much more money do they want until we realize it's useless.

Too bad the "Move On" FReepers just don't understand

I just don't understand their reasoning in saying
"drop it", "your wasting your time", "give it up" etc.

There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate

He is there illegally!

WAKEUP AMERICA!

For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.

Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen

Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3

And the FBI has proof of his treason.

Hey that control F is pretty cool. Thanks!

And I pointed that out too! Embryonic stem cell research isn't just unethical, it's a waste of money. It hasn't brought about anything but the needless destruction of human life. All this so called "research" is being done solely in college and university laboratories. Animal-Human Hybrids and embryonic cells grown in a culture of uterine cells.

Killing one group for the express purpose of possibly finding among their pitiful remains, a miracle cure for another group, is so ghoulish that no good that came, however astounding it may be, would ever erase the fact that the whole procedure is a beastly atrosity.

We spend $6 billion a year on tax money trying to cure AIDS --a disease that is 100% preventable (excluding blood transfusion recipients and babies born to infected mothers). Most diseases are lucky to get $100 million a year in taxpayer funding for research.

Stem cell research has the potential to cure many horrible ailments. It is a far worthier investment than the billions spent trying to cure AIDS.

Kerry, you dork, no one is banning stem cell research. The Bush administration merely put a cap on the Government's funding of stem cell research. If you want to pry open your wallet and give a little go ahead, no one is stopping you. If Michael J. Fox wants to give all his money to fund stem cell research,, he's allowed. So is Christopher Reeve's family and anyone else's for that matter.

The current administration is opposed to embryonic stem cell research, i.e the harvesting of stem cells from aborted fetuses or from lab grown embryos. These are the moral issues concerning stem cells, man's ability and willingness to play God. To either sacrifice a life or genetically engineer a life for the sole purpose of using it as a resource instead of as a gift.

How can Captian Longface support using human life as a resource yet oppose drilling into the dirt to locate a resource? That's why you lost, mor... Mr. Kerry and that's why your party continues to lose elections. You have lost your moral core and are out of touch with the rest of America.

Re: Juvenile Diabetes and Stem Cell Research:

You should know that a Harvard scientist has developed a treatment for juvenile diabetes using stem cells from the pancreas, I believe. She has tested her treatment on mice and not only has the treatment stopped the diabetes, the stem cells have regenerated on their own. Fabulous news! So she has gotten some funding from the Iaccoca Foundation, but when she went to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation for help, they turned her down flat. Guess why? Because they're focusing solely on embryonic stem cells. So, an organization suuposedly dedicated to eliminating juvenile diabetes would rather hang its hat on embryonic stem cell research, which if it even went through would be 10 years down the road, instead of funding treatment testing that could be implemented next year.

On behalf of your granddaughter, I would contact the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and ask them why they won't help her.

Well, I guess that gives me the right to ask them what those funds are for and tell them that I am against embryonic stem cell research---like the care, but at least I will ask them about the other study of pancreatic stem cells..

Thanks again for the information!

Yes, but all of the promising stem cell research projects use either adult stem cells or ones from umbilical cords. We're so tied up in the "politically correct " push for embryonic stem cells that we can't focus on where the successful experiments really are.
There have been successes with umbilical cord cells and adult cells from bone marrow, fat, and nose cells. Not from embryos.

If I had to choose, I'd say let's invest most of our money in stem cells from adult fat tissue. We have a never ending supply of that. A lot of people would be willing donors, for sure.

Let's keep it straight: there is unethical research and ethical research.

Any research that purposefully and intentionally by design kills a human being or any of our children, is unethical.

Non-embryonic stem cells are ethical. There are 2 women in Texas who went to Portugal to receive therapy with their own stem cells. My granddaughter and thousands of patients have received umbilical stem cell bone marrow transplants. Researchers in Australia reported that they are able to get multiple lines of easily grown, self-reproducing stem cells from the sensory cells in the nasal mucosa.
