Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.


August 9, 2007 --
A Christian activist organization charges in a federal lawsuit that [Michigan] Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s online petition to promote embryonic stem cell research discriminates against those opposed to it.

The Thomas More Law Center of Ann Arbor filed suit in U.S. District court in Lansing today on behalf of three anti-abortion groups. The suit claims Granholm’s petition – on her official state Web site since April 2006 – violates the free speech of embryonic stem cell research foes because she won’t allow them to post their opposing petition on the Web site.

Those who sign Granholm’s online petition have their names sent to House and Senate leaders, urging them support legislation that would lift state restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. Such research is opposed by anti-abortion groups because it uses the cells of discarded human embryos.

No question on whose side the writers for this blog line up. Why can't a Governor promote her own agenda on the state Web site? It's ludicrous to think Gov. Granholm would have no preference on any issue. And it's beyond ludicrous to suggest that she should post opposing views in the interest of Democratic fairness. People, she was not elected because she sat on a fence. She was elected because she espoused a particular platform with definite opinions. Her opinion is that the state should lift restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. More power to her for her advocacy on an issue she obviously cares about. You go, Governor!
