Senator Dianne Feinstein’s June Report: Senator Feinstein Calls on Senator Frist to Bring Bill Expanding Stem Cell Research to the Senate Floor (5/4/06)

(an extract from the report)

Ending the President Roadblock on Stem Cell Research

The potential for stem cell research was in the news again this month, when scientists at Johns Hopkins announced that they used embryonic stem cells to regenerate damaged nerves in paralyzed rats.

Just imagine what this discovery could one day mean for patients with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis or ALS! Our researchers, however, face a major roadblock imposed by the President in August of 2001, when he limited Federal funding to 22 lines of stem cells. All of these available lines are now contaminated with mouse feeder cells, so virtually there is no Federal ongoing research.

Now, hear from the Republican National Coalition for Life:

We expect the following bills to have recorded votes.

(S. 3504) The Santorum-Brownback Fetus Farming Prohibition Act RNC/Life SUPPORTS passage of this important measure which would, according to Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS), “stop the gruesome practice of initiating human pregnancies in either women or animal uteruses for the purpose of obtaining human tissues for research.”

(S. 2754) The Santorum-Specter Alternative Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies Enhancement Act RNC/Life OPPOSES passage of this bill because of the controversial nature of “alternative” means of developing embryo-like pluripotent stem cells, which its supporters claim may possibly be done without engendering an actual human embryo. We believe passage of this bill would add, rather than detract, from efforts to expand scientific experiments on human embryos. We further believe this bill does not enhance the pro-life cause.

(H.R. 810) The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, sponsored by Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE) RNC/Life OPPOSES this bill which would expand the funding of embryonic stem cell research beyond the parameters established by President George Bush in 2001. Those parameters require that no federal funding may be used for experiments on embryos killed after August 9, 2001.

Senator Brownback expressed his opposition to this bill in a June 30, 2006 release: “I am opposed to H.R. 810 because it would require taxpayers to fund the destruction of young human lives. It has never been acceptable to use human beings as a means to an end, even if that end is scientific research.”

The New England Journal of Medicine, in an article entitled “Fifty Years Later: The significance of the Nuremberg Code” (11/13/97), had this to say: “The Nuremberg Code is the most important document in the history of the ethics of medical research. The code was formulated 50 years ago, in August 1947, in Nuremberg, Germany, by American judges sitting in judgment of Nazi doctors accused of conducting murderous and torturous human experiments in the concentration camps. It served as a blueprint for today’s principles that ensure the rights of subjects in medical research.” The Code requires that experiments be conducted for humanitarian reasons, and the experimental subject should be protected “against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.”

It served as a blueprint for today’s principles that ensure the rights of subjects in medical research.” The Code requires that experiments be conducted for humanitarian reasons, and the experimental subject should be protected “against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.” We believe the Bush policy should be revised to prohibit taxpayer funding of any and all research on human embryos, no matter when they were killed. As a practical matter, that is not likely to happen. However, under no circumstances should the policy be expanded so that you and I, the U.S. Taxpayers, are forced into compliance with morally and ethically repugnant scientific research on human embryos and effort to create human clones.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS TODAY. LET THEM KNOW YOUR VIEWS ON THESE BILLS.

WE CANT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW CRUCIAL YOUR PARTICIPATION IS!

THANK YOU!

TWO OTHER IMPORTANT FEDERAL BILLS:

Two pro-life bills will be addressed by the U.S. House of Representatives as part of a package of ten bills the Republican Leadership are calling the “American Values Agenda.”

The Human Cloning Prohibition Act (H.R. 1357), sponsored by Reps. Dave Weldon (R-FL) and Bart Stupak (D-MI), ( http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/thomas ) and the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act (H.R. 356), sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/thomas ) are expected to be put to a vote before the end of the congressional session.

The “American Values Agenda” represents an apparent desire to re-energize the pro-life, pro-family base of the Republican Party prior to the November general election. The pro-life bills are the most important aspects of the Republican Leaderships effort, and we hope that pro-life activists will let their Representatives in Congress know that we expect nothing less than their immediate consideration and quick passage.

The Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act requires that mothers be fully informed about the unborn babys ability to feel the excruciating pain of the abortion procedure.

The Human Cloning Prohibition Act would ban human cloning.

Please contact your Member of Congress to urge prompt action on these bills.

Governor Schwarzenegger not opposed to the homosexual agenda.

Even though the Governors office has announced that he will (most likely) veto SB 1437 if it gets to his desk. it should be noted that he is not opposed to “Domestic Partnerships.” The following is an excerpt from a press release put out by the Log Cabin Republican group which is the Gay and Lesbian club within the Republican Party.

“Schwarzenegger is expected to attend the Log Cabin Republicans event to raise money for the organization’s West Coast chapters.

“When he took the oath of office he said he’d be governor for all the people and that’s what he’s doing,” said event organizer Ted Jackson.

“He’s coming to talk to us in an effort to reach out and be inclusive. He’s got a strong record of signing civil rights legislation and an even stronger record of reaching out.”

Schwarzenegger vetoed a same-sex marriage bill last fall but has said he supports domestic partnerships, and, since taking office in 2003, has signed two dozen bills in support of rights for the gay and lesbian communities.

“I think that you know the way I voted, and the bills that I have signed, and the bills that I have vetoed, and this is exactly where my position is,” Schwarzenegger said at a news conference Tuesday in Oakland. “I believe in domestic partnerships and all of that.”

Excerpt from the Randy Thomasson site Campaign for Children and Families. Gov. speaking to the Log Cabin Republicans, a Rep. group of Gay and Lesbian voters well respected for ability to raise funds.

BILL GATES/WARREN BUFFET MILLIONS TO FUND POPULATION CONTROL.

Add Warren Buffets $37 billion with of securities to Bill and Melinda Gates $29 billion and we have the wealthiest foundation to date, exceeding the Ford Foundations $11 billion, according to a report sent out by Population Research Institutes director Steven Mosher.

Moshers article (6/30/06, vol, 8. no. 25) outlines the intended goals of this ungodly union.

1. The motivation behind this announced reproductive health funding program is population control.

2. This goal disregards the known and recorded statistics on the falling birth rates in both the developed world and in some of the Third World Countries.

3. Both Gates and Buffet have long histories of subsidizing abortion and population control while also providing funds for many worthwhile programs.

4. Gates admits in in a PBS “NOW” interview that “My dad was head of Planned Parenthood.”

5. Gates Foundation gave $2.25 million to Johns Hopkins to train Third World experts in population control in 1997.

6. Warren Buffet provided funds for anti-Catholic Catholics for a Free Choice and his daughter acknowledges that “She expects that population control would be the foundations top priority.”

Healthy Kids Funds Removed From Budget

tJune 27, 2006

Legislators on Monday announced that they have reached a tentative budget agreement after they negotiated the removal of a proposal that would have funded county children’s health insurance programs that cover undocumented immigrant children, the Sacramento Bee reports (Benson, Sacramento Bee, 6/27).

However:

Democrats said they will introduce legislation this summer to expand children’s health insurance coverage (Sacramento Bee, 6/27). Democrats also “received a commitment” from Schwarzenegger to work with them on a health insurance expansion for children, the Times reports (Los Angeles Times, 6/27).

SCHOOL BUILDINGS OF THE FUTURE TO PROVIDE MORE THAN ACADEMIC EDUCATION AND TRAINING.

Pro Life and Pro Family groups have been reporting for years that the Educational Bureaucracy, especially in California have grandiose plans for the future of education and educational buildings.

For years articles have appeared concerning a program entitled “School to Work” and other titles about government and big business merging their goals of developing a utilitarian work force pool of students. Also articles have appeared about schools as centers for the delivery of health care and job training centers.

In June a conference of international Architects and planners was held in Los Angeles. The focus was on designing new buildings for the future of education. An Italian magazine “Europaconcorsi” interviewed Steven Castellanos on his ideas for building new s schools.

Here, in brief, is his interview. For the full, lengthy interview, please click on the link listed beneath this article. If you are unable to obtain the online article let me know and I will copy and paste it to you.

Steven Castellanos formerly served as the California State Architect and currently serves as one of California’ s delegates to the board of directors of the American Institute of Architects. From his extensive experience designing and overseeing public projects and working with the Sacramento bureaucracy, Mr. Castellanos knows first hand the challenge of building neighborhood centered schools.

For full report go to Europaconcorsi. This magazine for Italian Architects interviewed Mr. Castellanos at an Architectural Convention in Los Angeles. The article was printed 6/30/06

This is mainly an easier and more efficient method of sending out emails. There is no cost involved, but in order to get into this group it is necessary for you to respond to the request to join. Some of you have already done that and I thank you very much.

Due to the fear of spamming most software email programs provide only limited sending of emails with lots of names in the “to” column. Therefore it takes me an hour to send out email alerts in groups of 25 names or so. This newer way will allow all the names to go out in one email. Your privacy will be protected.

I hope that you stay with us. Also know that every email I send out also goes up on our website at http://www.callifeadvocates.org/blog

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
