“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

“That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; . . .”

Stem Cell Injection Cures “Bubble Boy” Disease 
Without resorting to killing embryonic babies, researchers from Italy and Israel said, in a study appearing in the journal Science, that two children have been cured of a complex form of an inherited immune system disorder by injections of their own bone marrow, which had been genetically altered to contain a missing enzyme gene.

The children were born with what experts said was the most complex form of severe combined immunodeficiency disorder, or SCID. Their form of SCID was caused by a gene flaw that blocks production of an enzyme called ADA, which is essential to make disease-fighting immune cells. It was this gene flaw that was corrected in the children’s own bone marrow.

The children, who were 7 months and 2½ years old when the therapy began, were released with healthy, functioning immune systems between 15 months and 24 months ago. (AP- The Dallas Morning News, – 6/28/02)

Bank Baby’s Life-Saving Cord Blood 
A small plastic pouch filled with less than 100cc of frozen blood taken from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby contains the stem cells that could not only save the life of the baby sometime during his lifetime, but could also save the life of a close family member. In the case of Chris and John Hunt of Libertyville, IL, the frozen blood taken at birth from the umbilical cord of Haley, their seventh child, could be used to save the life of John’s brother, Pat Hunt, if his Hodgkins lymphoma returns.

Awareness that cord blood can be collected and preserved as biological insurance against a future serious medical problem has resulted in the establishment of a growing number of cord blood banking and research facilities. Among them are:

“. . . Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness . . .” If left unfettered, the American way of life as envisioned by the Founders will enable free men and women, with the help of Almighty God, to find the answers to the problems that face us, and in so doing, benefit not only Americans but people throughout the world.
