Senate should oppose federal funds for embryo stem cell research

Today the U.S. Senate will vote on H.R.810, a bill which would allow Uncle Sam to spend your tax dollars to help researchers destroy human embryos in the name of science. Here are three basic reasons to call your Senator and ask him or her to vote against spending tax dollars on research that destroys human embryos:

  1. It’s immoral because it unneccessarily kills human beings.
  2. It’s unnecessary because adult stem cell research is already more successful and holds more promise … and all without killing any human beings.
  3. It’s politically unpopular when it’s explained clearly.

Defeating this bill would not ban stem cell research. It would only prevent the federal government from spending your tax dollars to fund research that destroys human embryos. Destructive embryo research would still be legal as long as it’s funded privately or funded by a state or local government.
Contact your Senator and urge him or her to vote “no” on H.R.810. If you’re interested in watching today’s Senate debate live, C-SPAN2 has you covered.
