Hillary Clinton “I will lift ban on embryonic stem cell research” supports Biotech companies and GMO’s

Sen. Hillary Clinton at the 2007 Take Back America Conference promised to lift the ban on embryonic stem cell research.

According to the NIH:

    In 2000, the Clinton Administration published guidelines governing the use of human embryonic stem cells in the Federal Register on August 23, 2000.

    On April 25, 2001, a scheduled review of pending grant applications was postponed to provide President George W. Bush and his new Administration an opportunity to review the issue.

    On August 9, 2001, President Bush issued a long-awaited decision on stem cell research. He authorized funding of stem cell research using existing pluripotent stem cell lines that were derived from human embryos before August 9. Such research is eligible for Federal funding if the following criteria are met:
    1) there must have been informed consent of the donors,
    2) the embryos must have been created for reproductive purposes and in excess of clinical need,
    3) there must not have been any financial inducements to the donors, and
    4) the embryos must not have been created for research purposes.

    During fiscal year (FY) 2002, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded the first grants to conduct human embryonic stem cell research, including both new grants and supplements to existing grants.

In the fall of 2007, Hillary told the Carnegie Institute, “The Bush administration has declared war on science. When I am president, scientific integrity will not be the exception it will be the rule.”

Then, Senator Clinton said she was “committed” to seeing that stem cell research moves forward. She voted in favor of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, and has also worked to expand the budget of the National Institutes of Health.

In 2014, the San-Diego Union reported that Hillary Clinton was advocating for Biotech companies especially those in California:

    California (undertook) a very important task in creating a funding stream for stem cell research,” Clinton said. “Other states have followed suit, when it looked as though the federal government would not be doing that. States have a role to play, but we need a national framework.”

    Clinton was referring to the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, funded with $3 billion in bond money. The program was created in 2004 by California voters in part because former president George W. Bush, the first president to fund embryonic stem cell research, limited funding to those lines of human embryonic stem cells created by August, 2001. CIRM and the federal government also fund research with many other types of non-embryonic stem cells.

On June 25, 2014, Hillary Clinton was interviewed by Jim Greenwood, president and CEO of the Biotechnology Industry Organization, at their San Diego Convention Center pushing fetal research and GMO’s.

“I don’t want to see biotech companies or pharma companies moving out of our country simply because of some perceived tax disadvantage and potential tax advantage somewhere else,” she said.

“If Washington is not welcoming to this kind of effort, maybe it could be put together by the states that are the leaders in hosting biotech companies,” she said, citing California funding stem cell research when the federal government would not.

She also supported the promotion of GMO or genetically modified seeds which she labels “drought resistant.”

Recently, Hillary Rodham Clinton defended abortion biz Planned Parenthood who sells aborted baby parts to Biotech firms for medical research.

Things Americans Can Do to Help Persecuted Christians in Iraq

Posted in Islam, persecution with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2014 by saynsumthn

Iraqi born pastor Jalil Dawood of the Arabic Church of Dallas, who, along with other Christian leaders will be holding a rally on Sept. 14 in support of Iraqis who are being persecuted by the Islamic State, says there are five things Americans can do today to help their brothers and sisters in Christ.

What Americans can do today is write to their representatives and tell them the U.S. government needs to take more aggressive action toward the Islamic State, because this group is not only a threat to Iraq, it’s a threat to America, eventually. And we need to deal with them now, before it’s too late,” Dawood told The Christian Post.

I heard the president say last week that he doesn’t have a strategy. Well, ISIS’ strategy is to kill us. Their strategy is to convert us and kill us,” he asserted.

The second thing Americans can do, he said, is to provide tangible assistance to the 250,000 refugees in Iraq through trusted nonprofit organizations that are helping Christians and other religious minorities who’ve been forced to leave their homes to flee the terrorist organization.

Broden

Pastor Stephen Broden of Fair Park Bible Fellowship, who will be a featured speaker at the Dallas rally, told CP Thursday that three of the nonprofits that have been helping Iraqi Christians are Open Doors, Samaritan’s Purse and Voice of the Martyrs.

While the Sept. 14 rally is being held in Dallas, Dawood is encouraging everyone who lives outside North Texas to hold simultaneous rallies in their communities; not only to show support for persecuted Christians and religious minorities in Iraq, but to pray and find tangible ways to help.

Do something practical, not only in words but in deeds,” he advised. “We need to speak; we need to shout to the Lord, we need to shout to the nation.”

This has to do with people of our faith. This is not an Iraqi issue, this is a global issue and it will touch us if we don’t do something about it,” Dawood emphasized.

“Like Bonhoeffer said, if we are silent in the face of evil we are agreeing with it, we are part of it; we become accomplices and are allowing it to happen. We don’t need to wait. We need to take action now and be heard before it gets too late.”

Rally in Dallas for Persecuted Christians

Posted in ISIS, Islam, persecution with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2014 by saynsumthn

The Islamic group, ISIS or ISIL has slaughtered Christians and other religious minorities in the region. ISIS has taken captive women and children and sold them as sex slaves. As a result, many Christians have been forced to flee the area.

Now, Christians in America are calling for an end to this genocide.

In fact, Dallas area Pastors, churches, and concerned citizens in North Texas are coming together to show support for these Christian brothers and sisters under extreme persecution in Iraq.

Believers and concerned citizens are joining to bring attention to the genocide faced by Iraqi Christians.

The rally will take place at:
Dallas City Hall
1500 Marilla Street Dallas, TX
September 14, 2014 at 4:30pm

WHAT TO WEAR AT THE RALLY:

WEAreN

The Islamic State in Iraq is painting an Arabic “N”–for Nazarene–on the homes of Christians.

In a show of solidarity, Christians all across the world are adapting that letter, using it as a social media avatar or a logo.

Attendees are encouraged to print off the #WeAreN (red and white) image off the Facebook page and either wear it or carry it. In addition, those attending the rally can carry a red cross.

A press conference will be held days prior to this rally and will include dignitaries and local pastors.

The Press Release reads, in part:

The deliberate targeting and persecution of Christians by ISIS in Iraq, as well as the blatant attacks on Christian communities throughout the Middle East has caused great concern and offense within the Christian communities of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding counties. In Iraq, many Christians are fleeing their homes and cities to escape the brutal jihad against Christians at the hands of ISIS. Many are now refugees in need of humanitarian aid. As confirmed by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity and the Vatican, 100,000 Christians are murdered every year because of their faith. Open Doors Ministry has stated that 9 out of 10 countries cited for the worst atrocities against Christians are Muslim.

Iraqi born Pastor Jalil Dawood of the Arabic Church of Dallas and Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship will be featured speakers at the rally.

In addition, other notable speakers and pastors will be present.

Mahoney outside NOW Iraq Christian womenA Christian Pastor and his wife are challenging the National Organization for Women to join their efforts in condemning the violence against women and children in Iraq.

Rev. Pat Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition and his wife Katie Mahoney have announced that they will be organizing in front of the headquarters for the National Organization for Women (NOW) in New York, Friday August 15th.

Pat Mahoney explains, “It is very troubling that the National Organization for Women, and other American feminist groups, have not passionately spoken out against the brutality against the women of Iraq. Quite frankly, this is an outrage.”

WaronWomen Now

The couple state in their event post, “in Iraq, we are seeing an unprecedented attack on women. The terror group, ISIS, is kidnapping women. Raping them. Beating them. Mutilating them. Forcing them into human slavery and sex trafficking.

The modern world has rarely seen such barbaric and violent attacks against the dignity of women.

The actions of ISIS, represent a picture of “The Real War on Women.”

Now Where Are You 835409_3195142650283900529_o

Tragically, when women around the around need to stand up and boldly condemn such barbarism and violence against their sisters, the voice of American feminism has been virtually silent. Groups like the National Organization for Women, have been AWOL in this global struggle for women’s rights.

To make matters worse, they have demeaned and cheapened the plight of the women of Iraq by using the term “War on Women,” to describe companies not providing abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives in health coverage, rather than the violence being committed by ISIS.

In response to this outrage, women leaders are gathering outside of the New York City Headquarters of the National Organization for Women challenging them to be a loud passionate voice for the women of Iraq and asking, “Where have they been?” and “Why they haven’t gotten involved.”

We invite all women of good will who are committed to human rights and ending violence against women to join us on Friday, August 15, at 12:00 P.M.in front of the headquarters of the National Organization for Women in New York City.

“Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation. But it is not inevitable. We can put a stop to this”.- Nicole Kidman.”

Katie _1343238167640069732_oKatie Mahoney, another organizer of the event made this point on the hypocrisy of NOW, “Perhaps if ISIS had just denied Iraqi women contraceptives or abortion inducing drugs instead of raping and brutalizing them, the National Organization for Women might be more inclined to speak out and become engaged.”
