"Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007"


Cardinal Rigali chairs the Committee for Pro-Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. In an April 4th letter to every member of the United States Senate, he urged rejection of S. 5 (i.e., the "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007"). He noted that S. 5 would "force taxpayers to encourage deliberate attacks on innocent human life in the name of medical progress." On April 11th, 46 Democrat and 16 Republican senators subsequently ignored Cardinal Rigali's plea and voted in favor of the so-called "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007."

When presented with this possible vote during his campaign, Robert Casey was not clear about his position. On April 11th, however, Senator Casey was one of only two Democratics to vote against the so-called "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007" (Pennsylvania's other senator voted in favor of this heinous legislation.).

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
