Let's Put an End to Human Cloning in Missouri
Commentary by Jim Day

    If you’ve had time to read or watch the news, on August 22 a coalition of concerned Missouri citizens, physicians, and academics launched the Cures Without Cloning (CWC) initiative to prohibit human cloning in Missouri.
    Unfortunately, the initial petition language delivered to the Secretary of States office was an early draft and during the few days that it took CWC to update the petition language with the Secretary of State’s office, those who favor human cloning started attacking the CWC campaign.
    The ‘clone to kill’ crowd claimed that people with conditions like Down, Turner or Klinefelter Syndromes who only have 45 or 47 chromosomes (depending upon their condition) were not considered human according to the initiative.
    Donn Rubin, chairman of the Missouri Coalition for Lifesaving Cures – the organization that spearheaded the passage of last year’s amendment to Missouri’s Constitution which gave constitutional protections to human cloning - called the CWC initiative language “shocking and egregious” and stated, “We can already see that this is a deceptively written proposal....”
    When Curt Mercadante, spokesman for Cures Without Cloning, heard of the objection his first response was, “Are they serious?” and called the concern a “political smoke screen.”
    I myself found Rubin’s comments extremely hypocritical given the fact that last year’s amendment ballot language was probably the most outrageously misleading and deceptive ballot language that has ever been put before the voters of Missouri. And, what ‘should be’ “shocking and egregious” to Mr. Rubin, and those who supported last year’s amendment, is the fact that that amendment codified the murder of innocent human beings in Missouri in their earliest form of life.
    It goes beyond absurdity for anyone or any organization to accuse any entity in Missouri that has been publicly connected to trying to stop efforts to clone humans for research purposes of being anything less than pro-life.

Governer Arnold Says 'Marriage' Can Be Terminated Argues in court case 'legal relationship' could be changed

    The voice of grassroots Americans was heard loud and clear in the Halls of Congress when the Senate decided not to vote for the amnesty bill that had been so vigorously lobbied by President Bush, by a handful of Senators known as the "Deal Makers," and by big media. 
    Republican Senators voted “No” by 3 to 1 (37 to 12), so it is clear that President Bush has divided the conservative movement that elected him. Your help is urgently needed to rebuild the conservative movement. We have the momentum — grassroots pressure must now demand that our government do its constitutional duty and secure our borders!
    Since we defeated future amnesty in the Senate, we must press forward now to terminate ‘Silent Amnesty’ (failing to use current laws to secure our borders).
    I am asking you to take this Resolution and get it passed by any and every organization you belong to or attend — particularly by all the Republican organizations in your area and state — district and precinct conventions/caucuses, whatever they are called.
    Just think of the impact we can have if hundreds of these Resolutions are passed! When it comes time for your State Republican Convention and the Republican National Convention in 2008, you will be able to get the Resolution passed there because you will have the proof that voters demand it!
    Thank you for your special help on this vital project.
