Another piece by yours truly in the New ersey Jewish News: Conference stresses promise of stem cell research

With Acting Governor Richard Codey pushing to make New Jersey a global leader in stem cell research, the Jewish community’s support for such research is taking on heightened political significance....

Codey hopes the legislature will place a referendum for a $230 million bond to support stem cell research on the November ballot, something that will instantly transform a seemingly esoteric Jewish-Catholic debate over the humanity of very young embryos into the stuff of political action and, no doubt, mud slinging.

It's going to be amusing to watch the Aryeh Speros and Jeff Balabons defend Catholic theology at the expense of Jewish lives as this issue develops....
