Re: Castle

An email: If the [biotech lobby] and the Dems decide to defeat the alternatives bill on suspension and are successful (which I don’t think they will be), then that is a huge story. They will have crossed over from their stated goal of wanting to do anything to find cures to their actual goal of holding cures hostage to killing human embryos. They will be in the indefensible position of blocking other methods of curing people in order to create pressure for embryo-only research. My mind is boggled.

Hopefully the House will bring the bill up under a Rule for a majority vote if it does not pass under Suspension.”
