Support Stem Cell Research

Stem cell research has great potential to treat, or even cure many fatal illnesses, including ALS. America has not pursued stem cell research with the level of vigor because it basically boils down to this: a small but vocal minority in the country believe stem cell research is baby butchery akin to legalized abortion, and for the last eight years a president who agreed, or simply didn't want to tick that small minority off, was in office. A lot of other politicians who should have known better heard words like "snowflake babies" and "abortion" and stayed out of sight with no comment. America and its scientists have waited long enough to show the world what they can do.

Not for much longer. Millions of Americans and hundreds of millions more worldwide who have been afflicted by fatal or terminal illnesses can actually begin to imagine, they can hope. They can dream of the incurable becoming cured.

Contact President Obama and urge him to remove the current restrictions which limit stem cell research. With your help, we can ensure that the ALS research community can pursue every opportunity to find a treatment and cure for Lou Gehrig's disease as soon as possible.

Welcome, at last, to the 21st century.

Take Time and Take Action.
