The cure that you speak of is the result of stem cell research, NOT embryonic stem cell research. There is a difference. Much reseach has been done with stem cells, and many cures have been found. There are NO cures attributed to embryonic stem cell research. Amendment 2 is an attempt to put the cloning into the Constitution so that no one can stop the cloning process,the taxing of the public to support it, or the killing of the babies that will be created in the process. You are right. Ed Emery is consistent. He consistently stands for pro-life, smaller government, economic freedom, lower taxes, and the TRUTH.

One thing one can say about Ed Emery is that he is consistent...consistently opposed to stem cell research. Researchers at Johns Hopkins have shown that transplanting human stem cells into spinal cords of rats bred to duplicate Lou Gehrig's disease delays the start of nerve cell damage typical of the disease and slightly prolongs life. The grafted stem cells develop into nerve cells that make substantial connections with existing nerves and do not themselves succumb to Lou Gehrig's, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The study is published in this week's issue of "Transplantation". How can one oppose research that will go on whether or not the State of Missouri is at its forefront or not? But, I do hope Missouri voters allow its progress here by voting "yes" on Amendment 2.
