More from the MCSCRC

When the Michigan Citizens for Stem Cell Research and Cures aren't copying and pasting text from other web sites to fill their own web site they put on some events with the stated goal of educating the public about stem cell research. The most recent event occurred yesterday at the University of Michigan-Dearborn and was covered by the student newspaper.

What still amazes me about this organization is their attempt to act (because of their tax status) like they don't favor a certain legislative agenda. For example, the article states,
The MCSCRC helped organize the event so that after the presentation of the facts about the issue each person would be able to "form their own opinion about stem cell research."

If the goal of the event is for attendees to "form their own opinion about stem cell research" then why were all the speakers strong proponents of embryonic stem cell research?

Also notice how the writer of this article was intentionally misled by the speakers into thinking that Michigan has a "ban against stem cell research" and that legislation to lift this mythical ban would also "strengthen the ban on human cloning." Strengthen the cloning ban? For some reason that sounds familiar.
