My letter to the editor is in today’s Houston Chronicle.
I wish I had thought to be more “precise and clear,” myself.
I wanted to praise the reporter for his question on adult stem cells and point out the hope Dr. Simmons has for them – even if the researcher still wants to get his hands on embryonic stem cells. It just didn’t seem the time to chide Mr. Ackerman and Dr. Simmons about destructive embryonic research. I was wrong.
Sending the letter to the “viewpoints” editors was an after thought. I was not expecting it to be published.
It’s time to call our Senators, today, since the vote is scheduled for Tuesday. You can find your Senator and a link for “Contacts” at Thomas.gov.
