> We have just learned that the Senate vote on H.R. 810, the Stem Cell
> Research Enhancement Act, is expected to occur this week. 
> As a result of the Unanimous Consent Agreement passed in the Senate
> two weeks ago -- there will be a package of three stem cell related
> bills up for consideration.  Make sure your Senators know
> that a vote in favor of H.R. 810 is the only pro-patient,
> pro-cure, and pro-research vote they can take! 
> Only H.R. 810 will bring hope and scientific progress to millions of
> Americans who suffer from diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, spinal
> cord injuries and other debilitating diseases and disorders. 
> Call both of your US Senators and urge them to vote YES on H.R.
> 810 and accept no substitutes when it comes to the Senate Floor!

> 224-2742

> points to get your message across:
> *  Inform them: H.R. 810 would expand federal funding for

> requires that federal funds could only be used if 1) the stem
> cells came from excess embryos that had been created for
> infertility treatment purposes and 2) the embryos would have
> otherwise been destroyed.
> *  Tell them why you care: Important advances have already been
> made through embryonic stem cell research.  H.R. 810
> not only provides hope of a cure to patients with type 1
> diabetes, but improved treatment options for all people with
> diabetes.
> *  Follow up: Ask for a commitment from them that they will
> support H.R. 810 and accept no substitutes when it comes to a
> vote.  Also, let your Senator know you will be
