Christopher Reeve on Stem Cell Research

This Sun-Sentinel article opens with a powerful quote from stem cell research advocate Christopher Reeve: "When politics and religion try to dictate to science, sick and dying people lose." Stem cell and therapeutic cloning researchers have demonstrated cures in the laboratory or early trials for heart disease, Parkinson's, nerve damage, cancer, and many other conditions. Yet these amazing advances are still under attack and the subject of anti-research legislation in the US and elsewhere. If we want to live longer, healthier lives through advanced medicine, then - like Christopher Reeve - we must step forward and say so.
