Proposal 2 Lies

The Michigan ballot Proposal 2 (Nov 2008) that claims it will

...ensure that Michigan citizens have access to stem cell therapies and cures, and to ensure that physicians and researchers can conduct the MOST PROMISING FORMS of medical research in this state, and that all such research is CONDUCTED SAFELY AND ETHICALLY, any research permitted under federal law on human embryos may be conducted in Michigan, subject to the requirements of federal law and only the following additional limitations and requirements:
This proposal lies in two ways (see HIGHLIGHTS):

a. The most promising forms of stem cell research involve ADULT stem cells. Such research is legal everywhere, and has produced over 100 beneficial therapies. This proposal, however, asks for the right to use EMBRYONIC stems cells, for which there are NO beneficial therapies, and it is considered by many, including the Catholic Church to be a moral eveil to kill a human being (an embyo) for any reason.

b. It's not safe or ethical (unless your evil) to kill human beings or unborn children.
