I know you are tired from yet another sleepless night, because you live the life of two, caring for a chronically ill loved one 24/7.

That is also the reason it is so easy to be deceived by the false promises of politicians like Corzine.

Check out his FULL support for human embryonic stem cell research when he ran for office: http://www.corzineforgovernor.com/...

I pledge to join Jon Corzine in working to make New Jersey the leader in embryonic stem cell research.

How easy it is to get swept up by the thought that New Jersey is funding embryonic stem cell research,..........but wait.......

New Jersey might just be using patients as props in their efforts to get tax payer funding for adult stem cell research instead.We are very much being misled in NJ.

Since 1999, it has been my mission to make sure the promise of hESCR ( human Embryonic Stem Cell Research) is being pursued both on the federal level as well as the state level. I loved Jonathan Moreno's article titled "Hope is not Enough" and Embryonic Stem Cell Research by the numbers:

Since March of this year, I have been alerting the various hESCR organizations about how NJ puts politics before progress. New Jersey has been touting the fact that they were the first or second state to appropriate funding for hESCR, yet an examination of the actual dollars awarded to hESCR, the research that the federal government has restricted, is dismal at $600,000 out of $15 million awarded so far.

As comforting as it was to know that CA did in fact decide to put $3 billion over 10 years towards hESCR, it is discomforting to know that other blue states such as NJ will use the positive propaganda of hESCR, to get taxpayer support for a state program that unbeknown to them has had a track record of funding primarily non-embryonic stem cell research at 95%.

It is immoral for NJ to tout the promise of hESCR and then turn around and use funds that the public expects where intended for hESCR, to cultivate adult stem cell research in NJ instead.

For specifics on NJ's neglect of human embryonic stem cell research check:

It is sad to see the hypocrisy of using people like my child who is paralyzed, to get money spent for purposes other than promised.

Please help right the wrong in NJ.

Don't become complicit in the neglect of human embryonic stem cell research if you really support the research.

Some leading patient groups are even trying to make you believe that NJ is going to be doing human embryonic stem cell research, even though they know that New Jersey instead is heavily focused on umbilical cord blood stem cell research.
