Notes from the Hill

The most radical “clone and destroy” bill in the country is on the brink of passage in Massachusetts, unless you act. Residents of the Commonwealth should contact the office of House Speaker Thomas Finneran as soon as possible. Leave this message: “I oppose the part of the economic stimulus bill that authorizes destructive research on human embryos in Massachusetts. Please have that language removed from the bill in conference committee.” Communications can be sent by phone during weekday office hours (617-722-2500) or anytime by fax (617-722-2008). Be polite and leave your home address. Get as many of your neighbors as you can to do the same. We must show that substantial grassroots opposition exists in Massachusetts against destructive embryo research. The legislature must act on the economic stimulus bill by Nov. 19, 2003
