News Release: Michigan Catholic Conference Questions Governor’s Support for Human Cloning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(LANSING)—Michigan Catholic Conference Vice President for Public Policy Paul A. Long released the following statement responding to Governor Granholm’s reference to stem cell research in her 2007 State of the State Address:

“Investing in our people is a critical tool necessary to move the state forward, but how can we invest in people if one issue for which the governor is advocating prevents scores of individuals from entering our state in the first place? Cloning and killing human embryos represents an ideology that will not move our state forward; rather, it will reduce human life to a devalued commodity merely created and destroyed in a laboratory for experimental purposes.

We cannot fail Michigan residents, and we strongly urge the governor to abandon a severely flawed ideology and work with those individuals and organizations who are seeking financial and political support for the amazing research advances that are being made on a daily basis with adult stem cells.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
