Tell the University of Nebraska Board of Regents that the search for lifesaving cures must continue in Nebraska.
Since 2001, it has been the policy of the University of Nebraska Medical Center to have its scientists and doctors conduct stem cell research – including embryonic stem cell research -- in accordance with federal and state law and the strict ethical guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health.
But now opponents of embryonic stem cell research are pressuring the University of Nebraska Board of Regents to abandon that policy and prohibit scientists from pursuing some of the most promising forms of stem cell research.
Stem cell research opponents plan to deliver petitions in support of this radical change to the Board of Regents on Friday, November 20, when the Board will decide whether to keep the current policy or severely restrict research.
Don’t let their voices be the only voices the Board of Regents hears.
