Stem Cell Research

StemPac is urging bloggers to rally behind the Stem Cell research bill heading to the Senate this month that could determine the future of federal funding for the controversial research. A bill already passed in the House, but President Bush has vowed to veto the bill if it clears the Senate.

Celebrity and Parkinson sufferer Michael J. Fox sent out a personal plea for Congress and President Bush to support this "pro-living bill."

If you want to get involved to help StemPac you can find more details here. Regardless of your personal religious beliefs, I think it is important to support this important research that could lead to medical breakthroughs in treatment for at least 70 diseases. This should not be an ideological fight but a medical one.
