Missourians Learning the Truth About Amendment 2! |
Limbaugh + Pro-Life Campaigns Turning the Tide
Rush Limbaugh, the popular radio talk-show host whose program boasts a listening audience of 10 million people, blasted efforts by Democrats and other liberals to defeat incumbent pro-life Senator Jim Talent (R-MO) and, at the same time, urge passage of a constitutional amendment that would legalize human cloning in the state of Missouri. Rush, in response to a television ad featuring actor Michael J. Fox, who has Parkinson's disease, asking Missouri voters to cast their votes for Talent's Democrat opponent, Claire McCaskill, claiming that Mr. Talent would "criminalize" stem cell research.
Rush jumped into the fray, pointing out that the information in the Fox ad is misleading at best, given the fact that Senator talent supports, as do most reasonable people, adult and umbilical cord blood stem cell research which has already yielded successful therapies for more than 70 serious maladies. What Mr. Talent opposes is unethical research that kills living human embryos for their cells. Senator Talent along with the rapidly growing majority of Missourians, opposes Amendment 2, the ballot initiative that would legalize human cloning in Missouri. The Michael J. Fox ad, in which the actor appears showing the effects of his disease (he admittedly omits taking his medication before testifying before legislative committees or doing commercials of this sort in order to demonstrate the tremors associated with Parkinsonism) is designed to lead people to think that voting against Talent and for Amendment 2 would somehow help patients like him, a message that is totally false.
Thanks to Rush for bringing this matter to the attention of his 10 million listeners. In doing so he has put the human cloning issue on the front burner and people are getting the message. His involvement in revealing the truth of what the anti-life forces are up to in Missouri, coupled with the heroic campaigns of pro-life organizations and individuals, has begun to bear fruit.
In response to the Fox commercial, a new ad produced by Vitae Caring Foundation of Jefferson City, MO, http://www.vitaecaringfoundation.org/ will run statewide on World Series Tonight.
You can view it here:
The ad features Hollywood celebrity Jim Caviezel who is most well know for his portrayal of Jesus in "The Passion of the Christ," Patricia Heaton, the popular star of the long-running TV show "Everybody Loves Raymond," St. Louis Cardinals start-up pitcher Jeff Suppan, Mike Sweeney who plays for the Kansas City Royals, and former St. Louis Rams quarterback, Kurt Warner, who currently plays with the Arizona Cardinals.
The most recent SurveyUSA poll has support for Amendment 2 below 50% for the first time.
In the 9/14/2006 poll, Amendment 2 was winning with 52% Yes, 24% No, and 24% Undecided.
On 10/12/2006, Amendment 2 was favored by 57%, with 27% responding No and 16% Undecided.
The latest numbers (10/24/06) show a dramatic reversal, with Amendment 2 at 45% Yes, 36% No, and 18% undecided.
We have said over and over again that the fate of the human embryo will determine the destiny of mankind. Will human beings at the earliest stage of existence be respected and protected under the law in America? Amendment 2 must be defeated if the answer to that question is to be yes.
Thanks to Rush Limbaugh for exposing the perfidy of the anti-life groups supporting Amendment 2. To all those who are working so hard to defeat it, thank you!
