Stem cell research supporters should know today is the last day public comment will be allowed for the new NIH guidelines.

It is, quite literally, now or never...

Click, comment, share with friends: TODAY IS LAST CHANCE TO COMMENT ON NEW STEM CELL GUIDELINES...

Today, Tuesday, May 26, 2009, is the last day allowed for public comment on the new stem cell guidelines proposed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

If you click on http://nihoerextra.nih.gov/... (before 11:00 Eastern Standard time tonight) you will come to the public comment page.  It is all set up for you, easy as pie.

Why should you take the trouble to say something important like "I support the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine’s position on the new stem cell guidelines" (which would be my recommendation)--?

Three reasons:

  1. The new guidelines are so cautious and conservative they would disqualify funding for almost all the embryonic stem cell lines made since 1998, when the field began. We owe the brave men and women scientists who worked in a terrifically hostile political climate—their courage, and their work, deserve to be supported now.
  1. The economy of the world depends on cure research. Last year, America alone spent $2.3 trillion on medical care costs—more than all federal income taxes put together ($1.8 trillion)—and 75% of that mountain of money went to pay for chronic (incurable) illness and disability.
  1. Your family deserves the best medical care science can provide.

We’re out of time, folks. Today is quite literally the last day.  

Click, comment, and then share this note with your friends.

Today, please, or the opportunity is gone.
