Why does the Bush administration not turn its attention to world problems? Why do they, instead, meddle in matters of science and medicine?
This poser president uses his veto power for the first time to subdue research into stem cell therapy? That could really hurt a lot of people...this stem cell research.
Instead, it will be refined in other countries, and we are left with expertise in torturing and election fraud.
Another area under constant attack from the right wing is the Oregon law of "Assisted Suicide". A terminally ill (less than 6 months) patient may be able to control the manner of his impending death. If found competent by two physicians, the patient's doctor may give him a prescription for a lethal "cocktail". Many patients never go on to use the cocktail -- but they like to be able to have some measure of control over the way their life is going to end.
This law was voted in by Oregon voters, not once, but twice. That's because the right wing has tried time and again to chisel away at this law. It's always someone from the right wing, always from outside the state....who tries to save Oregonians from the right to control their life and death. How many more times do we have to fight off yet another attempt by the neocons to impose their will on the will of the people?
No replay of Terri Schiavo. Keep politicians out of science and medicine!!
