Creating human embryos only to kill them
Congress may soon see legislation authorizing taxpayer-funded research on human embryos created specifically to be used in research, and thus opening a door to the federal funding of human cloning and human embryo farms.

Contact our congressional delegation today and urge them to oppose any legislation that would direct federal funds toward stem cell research that requires the killing of human embryos, or that would allow the use of cloning to produce human embryo research. Such legislation has been proposed by Senators Harkin and Specter (S. 487) and by Reps. DeGette and Castle (H.R. 872). While Sen. Thune has voted pro-life on this issue, Congresswoman Herseth Sandlin and Sen. Johnson have been strong supporters of life-destroying embryonic stem cell research, voting in support of such measures six times and one time, respectively. All three delegates need to hear from you!
