  •  Well, guys. It's both Coleman & Isakson. (6+ / 0-)

    And it's total crap.

    Senate Bill 30, the so-called "Hope Act" was sponsored by Republicans Norm Coleman of Minnesota and John Isakson of Georgia.

    From last staurday's huffingtonpost:

    Passage of S.30 would, in effect, negate any benefit from the passage of S. 5. Those lawmakers who support the vision of regenerative medicine and the potential of the power of human embryonic stem cell research should oppose Senate Bill 30. It is a bill detrimental to the advancement of human embryonic stem cell research and to the quest to cure human suffering and disease. It is a poison pill not only to hESC research, but to SCNT (somatic cell nuclear transfer). It is an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of America by offering a viable "alternatives" bill. This alternative research bill is being offered as part of a packaged compromise to insure the passage of S.5. This is far from a compromise; it is total surrender to a theocratic interpretation of science which, if endorsed, would be highly detrimental to the nation's well being.

    No hope. No dead babies. No substantive stem cell research.
