New Critical Reading on Cure Michigan's "Myths and Truth" web page

We've posted a critical reading of factual incorrect "truth" section of Cure Michigan's "Myth and Truth about Stem Cell Research" web page. Cure Michigan is the group behind Proposal 2, a proposal which is attempting to allow unregulated and unrestricted research on human embryos to Michigan.

The "Truth" section of their web page contains a number of "truths" which are blatantly false including the false claim that clinical trials using embryonic stem cells are close to starting, the false claim that Proposal 2 would only allow research on 5-6 day old human embryos and the false claim that experiments using specialized cells derived from embryonic stem cell don't cause tumors in animals.
