Adult Stem Cell Awareness

Obamamania? Just say no.


Leticia poses the scenario, “What to do if Obamamania hits home?”

Let’s raise the stakes:  What do you do if  you live in the eye of the Obamamania hurricane? That’s right, what’s a good Catholic girl living in Illinois to do?

1) Allow yourself to feel a momentary surge of unbridled joy. There is a very real possibility that  Barack Obama will not be your senator for much longer. Of course, that doesn’t help with the fact that Sen. Durbin, Governor Blago, and Attorney General Lisa Madigan are working hard with your tax dollars to perpetuate the reign of gloom and doom that is the scene in Illinois . . . but surely I digress.

2)Allow the momentum from that first unreflective surge of unbridled joy to keep you from falling to the floor in despair once you completely comprehend the real possibility that Mr. Obama could be your next President. Please don’t pass out – it may be interpreted as a swoon.

3)Get the facts, get busy, and get a t-shirt. The t-shirt is a nice touch isn’t it? It’s not really safe to wear that outside Dupage county though – just fair warning.

Fact: Mr. Obama sponsored the misleadingly named Ronald Reagan Biomedical Act of Illinois and the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act in DC – both promoting extravagent funding for embryonic stem cell research.  Mr. Obama appears to have a slightly more sophisticated knowledge of the stem cell world than many of our politicians, which unfortunately makes it less excusable that he stood before President Bush and said:

All over the country, exciting progress is being made in the area of embryonic stem cell research. At the University of Illinois, they’re finding that stem cells have the potential to treat blood disorders, lung diseases, and heart damage. . .   

without so much as even nodding to the fact that adult and amniotic fluid stem cells are not potentially treating these problems . . . but in fact, already are. Thankfully, President Bush was not impressed.

 In his own bid for the Oval Office, 2008, Mr. Obama reaffirms his commitment to federal funding for embryonic stem cell research:

“This is about a commitment to medical research, under strict federal guidelines. … [We must] expand the current policy on embryonic stem cell research so that we can begin finding the cures of tomorrow today.”

Change? Folks, this isn’t pocket change. We are talking billions of dollars to be spent on research that is morally reprehensible to many Americans.

Fact: Mr. Obama opposed the Supreme Court’s recent ban on Partial Birth Abortion.

Fact: Mr. Obama opposed the Born Alive Infant Protection Act – a stance that put him even left-field of NARAL. Scary. Try that one on sally swooner.

While there are many who cannot, for whatever reasons, understand that the human embryo has inherent dignity and should be respected, and still others cannot find themselves opposed to any abortion procedure, even the most repugnant, surely they will bat an eye at the idea that an already born baby should not be given the  respect due a human person.

As for Barack Obama,  the only batting he has done is zero for three in these crucial life issues.

Obamamania? Change that some, literally, won’t be able to live with.

  2. Do you feel mine? I have Senators Clinton and Schumer, plus Gove Elliot Spitzer here in New York! OUCH!!
    We are responsible for inflicting HIllary on the American public, just as Illinois residents showed the abyssmal taste of preferring Obama to Alan Keyes.
    We have to spread the word about Obama’s terrible record on life issues in reparation!

  3. Yes I do Leticia… As well as the pain in California with their “dynamic duo” of Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and governor Arnold Shriver Schwarzenegger.

  5. Hi Monica,

    I just discovered your blog tonight via Chelsea. I am a Catholic “girl” living in KS now formerly from IL. and first became acquainted with Obama when he was running against Keyes. I wasn’t charmed by him then and still am not swooning or fainting over him. Thanks for the post — I wasn’t aware of his recent obaminations.

    Did you know that Durbin used to be pro-life when he was first elected?

  6. Leticia,

    Here is KS, we have Governor Kathleen Sebelius, Hillary’s political clone, who may end up as Obama’s running mate. That should guarantee his loss if he’s elected — at least in KS.

  7. Whoops! I meant to say nominated in the post above. Heaven forbid he be elected!
