On November 6, 2007, the taxpayers of New Jersey will again be asked to pony up--this time $450 million to fund every anti-lifers' favorite white elephant, Embryonic Stem Cell research. Embryonic Stem Cell research involves the willful creation and destruction of viable human embryos for therapeutic techniques that, to date, have resulted in NO cures.
And of course, the NJ bill does not fund Adult or Cord Stem Cell research, a much more promising and less ethically troubling experimental treatment modality which to date has yielded 73 successful therapeutic uses.
Here in NJ, we're working to get the word out on the grass-roots level. Here's a link to a flyer that lays the issue out simply:
Vote NO on Embryonic Stem Cell research in NJ
I encourage NJ residents to print off copies of this flyer to distribute around the state.
Even if you're not from NJ, please forward this link to family and friends living here.
