Proposal thumbs nose at state, local control


Dear Editor,

Vote 'no' on Proposal 2. While proponents in Michigan say cures are its goal, the Constitutional amendment opens the door wide for "anything goes" in terms of embryonic research. That is the stated goal in its beginning and the final statement bans any law that will "prevent, discourage or restrict research or create disincentives to participate in the research." That really says it all. Anything goes, no holds barred research into the beginnings of life. And no state or county or local agency can say anything about what research can be performed or where.

The proposal thumbs its nose at any zoning or regulatory ordinances and hands it over to the Feds. Look what good work Washington has been doing in the loan and bank mess. Does anything think they will regulate anything right?

In England cow and human genes are being mixed in the name of research. Can't happen here? Recently a paper was given at the U of M in Ann Arbor on the ethics of human-animal DNA mixing. Say it can't happen here? Just think about unhindered medical research and where it could go. Look back at Nazi Germany and their wild medical research. Can't happen here? I don't want to take the risk. Do you? Vote 'no' on Proposal 2.
