Stop The "Temporary Moratorium"
On Therapeutic Cloning

The President's hand-picked Bioethics Advisory Committee is soon expected to endorse a "temporary moratorium" on all forms of cloning research, including somatic cell nuclear transfer, (SCNT), which promises to lead to breakthrough therapies to help cure aging and age-related diseases.

Having been unable to impose their will on America through an open vote in the Senate, the enemies of therapeutic cloning research are mobilizing their forces for a backdoor assault on this pathbreaking research.

A "temporary moratorium" would most likely be unliftable, becoming a permanent ban. Many forget that a similar "temporary" moratorium was placed on In Vitro Fertilization research in 1974. That ban is still in effect today, 28 years later! Fortunately for American families, the moratorium was placed on publicly-funded research; with private research continuing.

The new moratorium would be even worse, because it would shut down private research as well.

We need your help now to prevent this "temporary moratorium" from being imposed on the American people.

Please write a letter and send it via, fax and/or postal mail and place a phone call to three undecided Senators, saying something like this:

Dear Senator:

Please do everything you can to help advance Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) research. As you know, approximately 100 million Americans have diseases and disabilities which are incurable by traditional medicine but may be alleviated or cured by SCNT.

Please stand against the so-called "temporary moratorium" proposed by enemies of this most promising research. Such a moratorium would cripple life-saving research, and be nearly impossible to lift.

Remember, nothing cuts health care costs like cures!

Thank you,

Your Name
