News came out this past Friday that the Food And Drug Administration (FDA) had okayed its first (ever) embryonic stem cell test. This test took several months to get through the review process because of the dogmatic roadblocks, the Bush administration put in place.
In an interview with CNN on January 18, Obama said: "I like the idea of the American people's representatives expressing their views on an issue like this." As President,,, it is Pres. Obama has the power to issue an Executive Order opening federal funding for stem cell research. ." Let's hold him to his campaign pledge!!
Only after this fruitless & obstructive red tape is eliminated and federal funding for stem cell research is allowed, can life saving research once again resume. . Although President Obama pledged to reverse the Bush administration's ban on federal funding of stem cell research during the campaign trail, he seems to be backing off on that pledge now.
If we leave this issue alone for any length of time, it will definitely be relegated to the back burner, and research for diseases like ALS, M.S., Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's, spinal cord injuries, and organ and tissue damage will definitely be set back.
President Obama must issue an Executive Order to open federal funding for stem cell research. ." Let's hold him to his campaign pledge!!
Right now, there is no bigger supporter than myself of Pres. Barack Obama, but if he starts passing the buck on such important issues as federal funding for stem cell research, there will be no greater critic. People's Lives are at stake here, let's do the right thing.
All family & friends of loved ones suffering from diseases that stem cell research funding could help, should take the time and get involved ?. We need your support

They came first for the Communists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
