What type of leader would ignore the wishes of 72% of their constituents? This is exactly what happened when President Bush vetoed the recent bill on stem cell research!
Stem cells are "blank" cells that have the potential to develop into any type of cell in the body. A large majority of our nation's leading scientists, bi-partisan majorities in both houses of Congress, and the American people feel that great medical advances can be made through using these blank cells for research.
Yet now the hopes of millions of Americans suffering from diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, cancer and diabetes have been dashed! And it's the fault of those who believe a chance at life-saving treatments for millions is not as important the personal morals of a few individuals: the leaders of the religious right.
Exercise your democratic rights: Tell the religious right's leaders - Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, and Pat Robertson - what you think of their obstruction of this vital legislation!
It's your fault that stem cell research legislation failed this week after President Bush's veto.
You have ignored 72% of the American people, bi-partisan majorities in both houses of Congress, and our nation's leading scientists. You have dashed hope for millions of Americans suffering from diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, cancer and diabetes.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
