FRIST SUPPORTS KILLING HUMAN EMBRYOS
Tell Senator Frist you can't be pro-life and support killing embryos!
After demurring for months, Senator Frist is now supporting the Castle/Specter bill which undermines President Bush's policy on embryonic stem cell research.
Senator Frist cannot have it both ways. Saying you are pro-life, doesn't make you pro-life. The pro-life position remains that human life should not be harmed, destroyed, or manipulated in any way. If taxpayer dollars are to be spent, they should be spent on non-embryonic stem cells (such as cord blood and bone marrow), where over 65 diseases have been successfully treated in humans. Even in the case of ethical research, experiments are never performed in humans before first proving successful in animals. Embryonic stem cell research has not treated even one sick rat!
Senator Frist should hear from every pro-lifer TODAY! Please call his Washington D.C. and district offices. He must know that his presidential hopes will never be realized as long as he supports killing human embryos for experimentation.
Call Senator Frist and tell him his decision to support killing human embryos makes him clearly NOT pro-life. Be sure to call both DC and district offices.

Call President Bush and tell him we expect him to veto any legislation that supports federally funded killing of embryos!
