AMERICA AT THE CROSSROAD
Pro-Lifers Have Little Time to Win Embryo Debate!

OVERVIEW:

Advocates of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research are dominating the public debate as President Bush ponders his decision. Scientists want unfettered freedom to conceive and destroy human lives while promising amazing, but unproven, treatments for disease. With tax dollars, they want to spawn huge new industries to conceive, harvest and exploit harvested human embryos. America stands at an epochal crossroad.

--"Powerful forces... argue... that if we do not profit from these technologies, they will go offshore and others will profit... there is an inevitability in technology that defies regulation... The question is, 'Shall technology be harnessed for the good of humankind, or humankind for technology? ...'" (Nigel Cameron, Wilberforce Forum briefing, 6/26/2001).

--Private firms promoting themselves as heroes in the quest to find cures for disease have publicly boasted that they already routinely conceive and/or clone human embryos to harvest cells for research.

--Meanwhile, reports about stem cell experiments that produced monster-like effects in laboratory mice, raising serious doubts about human experimentation, have been intentionally withheld from the public.

--This week, the National Institutes of Health delivered a report to President Bush that states such research "is needed" and all but recommends that the President approve federal funding.

--Senator Bill Frist (R-TN), a heart surgeon, has added his name to the growing list of "pro-life" Republicans who favor public funding of embryonic stem cell research. Frist recommends funding "within a carefully regulated, fully transparent framework. " He wants to outlaw the conception and cloning of embryos in both public and private research, but allow public funding for research on embryos otherwise intended for destruction.

Time is of the essence. This is a must win battle! The enemies of life, blinded by profit potential and armed with false promises of miracle cures, are on the verge of winning. Only God's people, by immediate, sacrificial prayer and action can turn the tide!

Please Join Us in Believing, Prayer:

--Heavenly Father, You created us in Your image and commanded, "Thou shalt not kill." You said, "Rescue those being led away to death." Help us! Stop those who would barter the bodies & souls of men. May President Bush say "NO!" to tax-funded embryonic stem cell research. In Jesus' Name. Amen (Gen 1:26-27; Ex 20:13; Ps 18:all; Pr 24:11-12; Is 1:16-17; Rev 18:11-13).
