States play catch-up on stem cells (Martin Kasindorf, USA Today) (2004 Dec 17)
" A few states — notably New Jersey, Wisconsin and Illinois — are rushing to catch up with California in encouraging stem cell research, with an eye on the prestige and economic benefits that could result.

" Elsewhere, social conservatives are moving to block embryonic stem cell research. Because harvesting stem cells from an embryo requires destroying it, the issue "has crossed lines with the exposed nerve of abortion politics in this country," "

Stem-cell science an election issue in 3 states (Christine Vestal, Pew) (2008 Oct 09)
" But this year, both Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama and Republican candidate John McCain say they support federal funding of the science, although McCain would limit funding to studies that do not involve human cloning techniques. "

" As a result, state politicians who favor the science can no longer point to a lack of support in Washington as cause to take action, and tanking state budgets make it unlikely any politician would advocate appropriating state revenues for the research. At the same time, politicians who oppose the science on moral grounds are loath to talk about limiting the research, since a wide majority of Americans say they approve of it. "

" Had Georgia Right To Life not broken with the pledges most Republicans (and some Democrats) had signed, which allowed for three exceptions, there would be mutually agreed upon language on which to build legislation.

Battle with GOP lawmakers over stem cells could cost U-M state aid (David Jesse, Detroit Free Press)
" This time, Republicans on the subcommittee are upset with what they call U-M's "thumbing of their nose" at requests for information about embryonic stem cells. Several lawmakers said that if they don't get the information -- required under language passed in last year's budget -- they'll look at docking U-M's state aid. "

One Nevada group opposing abortion withdraws election measure, supports another (AP)
" The initiative, “Unalienable Right to Life of Prenatal Persons is Protected” was withdrawn by the Nevada Prolife Coalition.

" Organizers said they will work with members of Personhood Nevada to collect signatures for its proposal called “The Right to Life for Young and Old Alike.”

" “Working in tandem on only one prolife personhood initiative, rather than two, will make the best use of the limited time remaining before the June 19 deadline,” said Chet Gallagher, director of Nevada Prolife Coalition. “It’s still a big job, but pooling our resources may provide the edge we need to succeed in this important task.” "
