Dr. Ralph J. Duda Jr., an endocrinologist from Springfield MO, wrote a powerful op-ed about the disasterous Amendment 2 which voices the anger and frustrations of all of us fighting to see that this thing does not pass. I don’t want to spoil the whole thing for you, so here’s a little taste: “An unbiased […]

The op-ed that I sent to the newspapers in Missouri didn’t get picked up, as I expected. So, I went with just a letter to the editor. I am actually very sorry to admit that this is the first letter to the editor I have written about the amendment – or ever for that matter […]

The election will be in nine days, starting tomorrow – a perfect opportunity to start saying a Novena for the election. There are many good novenas out there. I will be praying to St. Philomena. A friend of mine sent me her prayer card specifically for this election and said: “Let this little girl take […]

This is phenomenal! Thanks to a heads up from Wesley Smith’s blog I found out about Bogo Wines. These wonderful people are supporting adult stem cell research through the sale of their wines. Fantastic! They provide information about ASCR on thier website and donate a portion of their sales to two different ASC research facilities […]

A group of Missouri Physicians are speaking out against Amendment 2. This, of course is not a first. It is a myth that all doctors and scientists are in favor of cloning and embryonic stem cell research. In 2004 57 scientists and physicians sent a letter to John Kerry voicing their concerns about his statements […]

Now, this is what I call a grassroots effort! Last night our little Gospel of Life committee had a stuffing party for the mailing we are sending to all of the families in our parish about Amendment 2. It went by surprisingly fast, too. We had roughly 1,200 letters to send and they were signed, […]

I’m really excited about this ad. It is supposed to be played during the World Series tonight, if they play. It’s supposed to be raining. I won’t be able to see it because I’m going to a Missourians Against Human Cloning presentation that I will say a few words at. I’m looking forward to the […]

Most of you have probably heard about the campaign ad that Michael J. Fox did for politicians recently. He doesn’t say whether or not he stopped taking his medication before doing the commercial, however, in 1999, at a Senate subcommittee in Washington, he made a “deliberate choice to appear before the subcommittee without medication”, according […]

The Family Research Council has a really good video with basic stem cell information. I had a little trouble viewing it on the website, but there is a link to launch the external media player that worked much better for me. It’s a good introduction for someone who is new to the stem cell debate. […]

These are the 3 D’s of Amendment 2. The first one is self explanitory and has been the primary focus of those opposed to the Amendment. The amendment language redefines the term cloning in order to get away with claiming to ban the procedure. This language is conveniently left off of the official ballot language […]
