Washington, D.C., is finally listening.
Almost three years after it was introduced, the House of Representatives is bringing the subject of increased federally approved stem cell lines to debate on the floor and for a vote.
With one out of two families having a loved one with a condition that could potentially be cured by future therapies discovered through this research, we need to speak up and let our representatives know that we need this legislation passed now.
Everyone who voted in favor of Proposition 71 in the last election needs to write to their congressional representative and ask their support for this key piece of legislation.
We have allowed ourselves to place unimaginable burdens on our children and grandchildren ó such as the highest national debt ever, decreased medical care insurance coverage, a broken system of Social Security and a fragile ecology we have made even more fragile.
Isnít it time we left a good legacy to our children, one of future good health and treatment? Write those letters!
