Urge Congress to Pass Legislation Safeguarding Stem Cell Research This Year

November 3, 2010

The Center for Inquiry-Office of Public Policy is urging supporters to tell Congress to pass legislation safeguarding stem cell research during the lame duck session scheduled for mid-November.

A recent federal court ruling threatens to cancel scores of experiments in diseases ranging from diabetes to Parkinson’s.  A legislative solution is therefore necessary to ensure that federal funding for this important research is no longer vulnerable to political or ideological challenge.

Urge your Senators and Representative to cosponsor the Stem Cell Research Advancement Act (H.R. 4808 / S. 3766).  Tell them that Congress must act now to pass a bill in 2010 that explicitly authorizes the NIH to fund embryonic stem cell research.  Click   HERE to send a message to your Senators and Representatives.
