Support a bill in Maryland

This just in from the Archdiocese of Washington:

Push for bill S. 1317 in Maryland to promote umbilical cord blood stem cell research. This has no negative moral ramifications because "umbilical cord blood stem cells are obtained from the blood contained in the delivered placenta and umbilical cord, which are normally discarded after childbirth. Obtaining these stem cells present no inherent moral concerns."

Here is a link with more information and where you can e-mail your petition for Sens. Sarbanes and Mikulski to vote in favor of it. Keep in mind that Sen. Barbara Mikulski calls herself a Catholic but does not choose to follow many of the Church's teachings on morality. She also presents herself for Communion. Pray that she and Sarbanes open themselves up to the will of the Lord and make the correct decision in this matter.
