Delaware Catholics and Evangelicals Join Forces to Defeat Embryonic Stem-Cell Bill
DOVER, Delaware, February 9, 2006 (LifeSiteNew.com) – A Delaware bill authorizing human stem cell research was stripped of all anti-life components before passing in the house, thanks to the efforts of a concerted group of Christians.
Senate Bill 80 was passed in the Delaware House of Representatives this week after all references to human embryonic stem cell research were removed from the bill. Supporters of Bill 80 were not able to gather sufficient votes for the bill to pass in its original form.
The victory is being attributed to a campaign called “A Rose and a Prayer” undertaken by a coalition of Christians, who received an overwhelming response to calls for participation in opposing the bill. Story
