Stem Cell Research, a General Statement

I support adult stem cell research. As a veterinarian, I have a special appreciation for scientific research that produces results and cures diseases. Research using adult stem cells has produced results that have the potential to cure numerous diseases. According to Dr. Donald Orlic of the National Human Genome Research Institute, scientists have found that adult stem cells from the bone marrow of adult mice can rebuild a damaged heart by creating new heart muscle and blood vessels. Dr. Orlic stated that "this latest research shows that the embryos, which are politically controversial, may not be necessary. We are currently finding that these adult stem cells can function as well, perhaps even better than, embryonic stem cells."

I believe the decision to have an abortion should be between a woman and her God. I will defend that Constitutional right. But I hope that we can work together as a nation to find common ground that makes abortions rare, by providing the best information about and access to healthcare, and by teaching our children the life skills to make good choices.

I do not support mandatory waiting periods, spousal consent, biased counseling requirements or other extreme limits on abortion rights. I do support parental notification, with appropriate bypass procedures, and bans on late term abortions, except when necessary to protect the life or health of the mother.
