SENATE TO VOTE ON FETUS FARMING/EMBRYO RESEARCH NEXT WEEK |
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) have agreed that the Senate bioethics debate will take place on Monday, July 17th. Action on the legislation is currently expected to be completed by Tuesday, July 18. Votes will immediately follow the debate.
In 2001, President Bush established a policy designed to prevent the killing of embryos for research on cells that had been derived from embryos killed prior to August 9, 2001, and prohibited funding of research on embryonic cells derived after that date. While his policy does not affect privately funded research on embryos, we must not allow it to be expanded beyond its original intent.
H.R. 810 would force us, the taxpayers, into complicity with the taking of innocent human life. Its supporters ignore the fact that absolutely no benefit to any person has come from embryonic stem cell research. Instead, many thousands of patients have benefited from advances in treatments using non-embryonic stem cells, for example, successful therapies have treated or cured patients with heart disease, incontinence, genetic metabolic diseases, nerve regeneration, respiratory conditions, anemias and other blood conditions, auto-immune diseases, bladder disease, cancers, immunodeficiencies, liver disease, neural degenerative diseases and injuries, corneal regeneration, wounds and injuries, and other metabolic disorders, some of which are hereditary.
