Posted on 10/23/2006 9:55:29 AM PDT by unspun
Some of our most important candidates are being attacked in Big Lie campaigns, stating that if elected they want to "outlaw stem cell research."
I've seen it in attacks upon Senator Talent of Missouri and Rep. Mark Green, opposing Jim Doyle for Governor, here in Wisconsin. Doyle has bought heavily into TV ads with this slander.
FReepers should know that pro-lifers are strongly for adult stem cell research, since this is the only effective treatment for disease. We also konw that fetal stem cell production creates human cloning farms and has never done anything but poison human subjects.
Does anyone know of a good 1-page flyer or letter on the subject? We should circulate it and press our pro-lifer campaigns to do the same.
Sorry I'm in a rush, but some links for the grassroots group fighting
the pro-cloning amendment in Missouri are posted below.
Additionally, they've been handing out 1-page flyer titled something like
"10 Facts You Should Know About Stems Cells and Cloning".
I can't find a .pdf for it on their site.
If you can't find it either, and are really interested, you could drop
a dime and ask them about it at: 636-536-9877.
(there might be an e-mail contact on their site, but I'm just too rushed
(pdfs listed at this site)
(one of the more pertinent pdfs)
There are human subjects in China.
This is an article by Dr. Robert J. Cihak titled "Stem Cell Bigots" it is worth the read. www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2006/9/26/91505.shtml
Shhhh! You'll anger the indignant!
Plenty of pro-lifers are FOR research/therapies/cures with adult stem cells
(or embryonic stem cells from a patients own cord blood).
Well, you could also look at it this way:
Those pro-lifers are against the tumors that have been the general result
of attempts to use embryonic stem cells, so far
Stem cells create tumours, says expert
And do read the article.
You'll see they are talking about embryonic stem cells.
Both treatments I see on the main page (Stem Cell Treatment Reduces Parkinsons Symptoms and Beike - Nora Farkas) are using adult stem cells.
Keep 'em coming!
I never specified which type of cells being used. It wasn't clear at the start of the thread.
Stem Cell Research: Questions and Answers
Thank you Donna. This looks to be the best, most usable piece I've seen so far. Sent it to the Mark Green campaign in Wisconsin. Their response: "...the information you attached is very helpful. We will make sure our policy team and Mark Green review it."
"We are doing our best to get the message out that Doyle is spreading lies about Mark Green and you can help us by spreading the word to your family and friends."
