Is John Doolittle A Doctor? Is He A Scientist?

What promise does stem cell research hold? It could save lives. But how are we to find out if it lacks the necessary funding? Congressman Doolittle showed his ineffective side when he voted against federal funding for stem stell research by voting against the "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act" both in 2005 and in 2006.

Majority Action is now putting a human face to stem cell research and lets the actors in this ad ask some tough questions. You can just substitute "Congressman Walsh" by "Congressman Doolittle":

Charlie Brown will let science and doctors decide, not politicians:
Stem Cell Research holds the promise to alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life for millions of Americans suffering from diseases like Parkinsons, Alzeheimer’s and Diabetes. Charlie supports federal funding for stem cell research.
Make sure Charlie Brown gets to vote on matters like these in the future. Contribute to him now!
