STEM CELL SPAT
(2007-08-21)
(wgvu) - - AN ONLINE PETITION SUPPORTING EMBRYONIC
STEM CELL RESEARCH IN MICHIGAN HAS BEEN PULLED FROM GOVERNOR
JENNIFER GRANHOLM'S OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT WEB SITE.
THE LINK TO THE PETITION WAS MADE INACTIVE AFTER A
CHRISTIAN-ORIENTED LAW CENTER SUED BECAUSE GRANHOLM DIDN'T ALLOW
CITIZENS WHO OPPOSE THE RESEARCH TO POST THEIR OWN PETITION ON THE
TAXPAYER-SUPPORTED WEB SITE.
BUT IT WAS NOT CLEAR MONDAY EXACTLY WHEN THE DECISION TO YANK
THE PETITION LINK WAS MADE.
THE THOMAS MORE LAW CENTER FILED SUIT THIS MONTH IN FEDERAL
COURT ON BEHALF OF THE LANSING GUILD OF THE CATHOLIC MEDICAL
ASSOCIATION, FLINT-AREA RIGHT TO LIFE AND RIGHT TO LIFE-LIFESPAN.
THE GROUPS CLAIM GRANHOLM, USING PUBLIC RESOURCES, DISCRIMINATED
AGAINST PEOPLE WHO OPPOSE EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH.
GRANHOLM WANTS TO LIFT MICHIGAN'S RESTRICTIONS ON EMBRYONIC STEM
CELL RESEARCH.
