    Call Your Senators TODAY--Now is the time to Help Save Lives!

    A Bi-Partisan Group of Senators is Writing President Bush Urging Him to Expand the
    Current Federal Policy on Embryonic Stem Cell Research

    When President Bush announced his stem cell policy in August 2001, we did not
    foresee that the 78 lines available for research at that time would not be sufficient.

    ***TAKE ACTION***

    is NOT on this list, please contact him/her IMMEDIATELY.

    Call your Senators and urge them to sign onto the bi-partisan letter and support
    research! For phone numbers, click here.

    ************************
    TALKING POINTS:
    Tell your Senators about the challenges with President Bush's current policy:

    --78 available lines down to 15. While it originally appeared that 78 embryonic
    stem cell lines would be available for research under the federal policy, now, more
    than two years after August 9, 2001, only 15 are available to researchers.

    --The 15 lines are contaminated. All of those 15 lines are contaminated with mouse
    feeder cells, making their therapeutic use for humans uncertain.

    --No lines for research means less interest by scientists. Scientists are reporting
    that it is increasingly difficult to attract new scientists to this area of research because
    of concerns that funding restrictions will keep this research from being successful.

    --The U.S. is losing researchers overseas. This promising field of research is
    moving overseas. We have already seen researchers move to countries such as the
    United Kingdom, Singapore, Israel, Sweden, and Australia, which have more
    supportive policies.

    Call your Senators today -- tell them "Don't Deny Hope--Sign the letter!"
