Congress to overturn court ruling, fund embryonic stem cell research

Appeals court suspends ban on government funding of embryonic stem cell researc until Sept 20th.
Meanwhile, pro-abortion Congresswoman Diana DeGette introduced H.R. 4808 in 2009 to force government funding of embryonic stem cell research.
It has 51 co-sponsors. Now that Judge Lambeth has enjoined the government from spending money on ESC, the anti-life forces feel they must pass this bill. In spite of the fact that 58% of the public opposes government funding of ESC, they think this bill will play to their advantage.

DeGette claims that "Embryos and stem cells are two entirely different organisms,and they involve different types of research". If Nancy Pelosi retires, DeGette would fit right in.

House democratic leadership expect the bill to pass quickly by a wide margin when members return on Sept 13th from their "Summer District Work Period" (wording from House calendar). Capuano, Frank, and McGovern are sponsors.

This is the time to call to keep your money from killing babies for research that doesn't even work!
