StemCell Lawsuits
(2007-08-09)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A conservative law center has sued
Governor Jennifer Granholm, saying she has discriminated against
residents who oppose embryonic stem cell research by refusing to
let them have equal space on her taxpayer-supported Web site.
The Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center said today it has
filed suit in federal court in Lansing on behalf of the Lansing
Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, Flint-Area Right To Life
and Right To Life-Lifespan.
Granholm wants to lift Michigan's restrictions on embryonic stem
cell research. She has a link on her state Web site that encourages
citizens to sign a petition asking the state Legislature to pass
bills that would lift restrictions on such research.
The law center says Granholm refused requests from its clients
to place their own petition on the Web site opposing embryonic stem
cell research.
