New vote on stem cells

I'm back in Berkeley, and beginning another spring staff training, but posts should continue at a reasonable interval.

More than 5 long years into President Bush's short-sighted, cruel policy restricting stem cell research, America once again has the chance to reverse it -- and strike a blow for hope.

On January 11, 2007, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 3, a bill to overturn President Bush's restrictions. The Senate is expected to vote shortly thereafter. Although stem cell research has bipartisan support, "pro-death" activists are working hard to torpedo this bill, and take hope away from millions of Americans. Please write your members of Congress today, and ask them to support this bill:

Because President Bush may veto it, it is critical that we not only pass it -- but that we reach the 2/3 majority necessary to override the veto. Every vote counts -- and every email from you counts. So write your members today, tell them to support H.R. 3, and tell your friends to do the same:
