Excerpt: "W A S H I N G T O N, Oct. 23 — Congress will
wait until next year before deciding whether to remove key
restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research
that advocates say could lead to cures for Parkinson’s, Alzheim-
er’s and other diseases.

A final attempt to get a bill through the Senate late last month
was blocked by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., a leading abor-
tion opponent. He said embryonic cell research is "illegal, is im-
moral and it’s unnecessary."

Comments: Dead cells tell no tales - the cowardice of the buf-
foons in congress, led by the religious right, delay federal sup-
port for desperately needed cures for juvenile-onset diabetes,
Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other diseases for yet another
year.

Cells saved by this decision? None. Lives lost and damaged by
this decision of religiously motivated stupidity? __________?

From a juvenile-onset diabetic for 40 years, since the age of 5:
This senseless and cowardly delay in curing diseases afflicting
tens of millions of human beings is yet one more reason why I'm
opposed to religion and the devastating anti-human consequences
it has brought (and continues to bring) to humankind.
