"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)



President Bush is to announce his decision on the funding of human embryo research any day. On Capitol Hill this week, Hollywood stars have been voicing their emotionally charged support for federal funds to be used in this research. Mary Tyler Moore called this research "the pinnacle of charity to give life to another." Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) said there is "great potential" in this research. And the week before Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Strom Thurmond (R-SC), and Gordon Smith (R-OR) sent a letter to the President urging him to approve federal funds to be used to further embryonic stem cell research.

If all of these people say embryonic stem cell research is a good thing, why should Bush say 'NO'?

*Once an egg and sperm have united (fertilization) a new human being exists.
*This human being has its own unique set of DNA. *Size or age of a person is not a measure of the worth of someone. *The use of embryonic stem cells means that a human being has been killed.
*Horrible side effects have occurred when stem cells from aborted fetuses were transplanted into the brains of Parkinson's patients. See http://www.prayeralert.org/alertarchives/alert-03-01-06.html. *Evidence demonstrates that the harvesting of stem cells from embryonic babies is not necessary. Scientists say adult stem cells, available from many sources, can be coaxed to grow into bone, muscle, organs and tissues for the treatment and cure of serious diseases. See http://www.rnclife.org/reports/2001/may-june01/may-june01.shtml.

In America's zeal to treat and cure devastating diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, the lives of the innocent have been compromised. Have we forgotten the atrocities in Nazi Germany? Life, from conception, is a blessing that must be protected. Bush aides have told us he is firmly with us, but with the defection of so many professed "pro-life" legislators we must pray and urge the President to uphold the sanctity of life by denying the use of federal funds for embryonic stem cell research.

Please Join Us in Believing, Overcoming Prayer:

&Mac183;Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that You are the Creator of the Universe. Cause America to TREASURE all children, pre-born and born, as You have commanded (Ps 103:13; Pr 3:12; 127:3; 1 Tim 5:8). STOP the destruction of embryos for stem-cell research. CAUSE Pres. Bush to say NO to embryonic stem cell research. In Jesus' Name, AMEN! (Ps 1:1&2; Pr 6:17; John 14:12-14)
