October 2007

Dear Friends of Life:

On November 6th, 2007, there will be a Referendum item on the General Election ballot, asking to approve $450 million tax dollars to fund stem cell research. Most voters do not understand the issues, so in this letter we are asking for your help in a different way. Instead of writing a letter, please help us to distribute this letter to as many people as possible. Ask your church or organization to make copies for bulletins or handouts. You will see below that this letter can be the handout, or you can have this introductory paragraph removed before making a copy. We want the public to vote NO. The information below will explain why to vote NO.

Stem Cell Research Facts from a Pharmaceutical Professional

The following analysis has been prepared by Adolf Schimpf, a former Director at a major Pharmaceutical Corporation with responsibility for evaluation of bio-technology. Information presented here has been paraphrased in plain-language from National Institute of Health 2001-2006 reports and personal experience.

FACT ... as of August 2007 ...

Adult Stem Cells have been used to treat 73 different diseases; Embryonic Stem Cells have treated ZERO.

WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?

Stem cells are biological structures which in nature serve two different functions:

NOTE: The name "adult" does not mean "older than 21." These cells were discovered in adults before scientists knew that they actually also exist in unborn children.


WHERE DO STEM CELLS USED IN RESEARCH COME FROM?


WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS IN THE HUMAN BODY?

OBSERVATION: Embryonic Stem Cells are not found or observed during organ healing processes.


WHY DO RESEARCHERS WANT TO CLONE EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS?

OBSERVATION: There is no way of knowing when cloned cells become useless or dangerous.


HOW DOES THE HUMAN BODY USE ADULT STEM CELLS TO HEAL SICK ORGANS?

OBSERVATION: Results achieved with Adult Stem Cells demonstrate that the body has a curing system.


WHY ARE EXPERIMENTS WITH ADULT STEM CELLS SUCCESSFUL?

OBSERVATION: Adult Stem Cell experiments do nothing more than what occurs in nature.


WHY HAVE NO CURES BEEN FOUND FROM EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS?
Researchers must overcome many natural obstacles before Embryonic Stem Cells can be used.

OBSERVATION: Research to find cures using Embryonic Stem Cells requires activity not found in nature.


WHAT IS THE CANCER CONNECTION TO EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH?

OBSERVATION: Embryonic Stem Cells have produced many cancer cells, but not one cure - ZERO!


FACTS ABOUT THE NEW JERSEY STEM CELL RESEARCH REFERENDUM


FACTS CLEARLY INDICATE THAT THE REFERENDUM SHOULD BE REJECTED.

There are compelling facts to indicate that research with Embryonic Stem Cells may never become practical, since it involves having to go against their natural activity in human biology. Logic clearly indicates that resources of time and money are being wasted by not concentrating on Adult Stem Cell research. Delaying real cures for the sake of a political agenda regarding Embryonic Stem Cells, does a disservice to society and it represents a cruel deception of vulnerable patients waiting for promised cures.
