Research or Religion?
"We need to start listening more to researchers than religious beliefs." So says 36-year-old Michael DiScipio, father of three, and paralyzed from the chest down for the past seven years. DiScipio has been an ardent supporter of stem-cell research, including embryonic stem cells, since he broke his neck diving into the family pool. He is frustrated by New York state's slow response to embrace funding for this research, even though polls show that a majority of New Yorkers support it.
Paul Richter supports DiScipio's advocacy,"I (also) guarantee you that the people who are fighting against this (stem cell research) will be the first ones to the front of the line for treatment," says Richter, a former State Police sergeant who suffered temporary paralysis after being shot while on duty.
