I was reading Neil Gaiman's blog and I discovered that we are able to comment on the new regulations for Stem Cell Research. Unfortunately, several religious extremist organizations have totally decided to bombard the website with anti-stemcell research comments.
As of today:
*"The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) launched a new"Oppose Destructive Stem Cell Research" campaign today, equipping citizensto contact Congress and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to opposeembryonic stem cell research ." -- WASHINGTON, May 6/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ www.usccb.org/stemcellcampaign
". ..of the 6000 plus comments that NIHhas received concerning the draft guidelines, 99% were from people whoopposed embryonic stem cell research."-Carecure Forumhttp://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showpost.php?p=1039001&postcount=12
THERE IS NO WAY that 99% of the people in this country think helping find cures to terrible diseases is WRONG. If you guys could just take a minute of your time to leave a positive comment on the website, we could get a representative count of people, rather than something completely hoodwinked by the religious right. http://stemcells.nih.gov/policy/2009draft.htm
Here is a link to a great letter with lots more info and comment ideas.
