US Senator Calls for Bioethics Debate

Friday, June 23, 2006 - Stem Cell Guru

U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback (Republican-Kansas) said he plans to call for a floor debate on bioethics when the chamber takes up H.R. 810, an embryonic stem-cell research bill that life advocates oppose.

The Kansas senator hosted the recent Capitol Hill meeting of 'Do No Harm: The Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics' which highlighted testimonies of patients who have been helped by adult and cord-blood stem cells to treat spinal cord injury, heart disease, brain damage, cerebral palsy and other conditions. Amongst the speakers was David Foage, PhD., of Naples, Florida, a patient of TheraVitae's who underwent VesCell adult stem cell therapy in March 2006.
