Sex, Science and Stem Cells Summary


Sex, Science and Stem Cells by Diane Degette

In August 2001, President George W. Bush announced with fanfare that federal funds would be made available to scientists conducting research on human embryonic stem cell lines - with restrictions. Reading his words, not his lips, was Congresswoman Diana DeGette of Colorado's First Congressional District, and what she read was this: a ban. 'As a practical matter,' scientists could no longer pursue such work 'in any lab that had received any federal funding, at any time, for any reason. That one declaration severely constrained stem-cell research in this country', DeGette writes from experience - and hard-earned frustration.During fifteen years in office, her fight for sound public policy for ethical, cutting-edge scientific research has consistently been foiled. Pulling no punches in her scrutiny of a Republican leadership that has long shirked matters relating even remotely to human sexuality, she concludes that many of America's elected officials are simply too blinded by religious dogma to think rationally about sex. In "Sex, Science, and Stem Cells", she dares to do what they can't, or won't - opening the door to responsible, fact-based legislation going forward.

Sex, Science and Stem Cells Reviews


"Congresswoman Diana DeGette's "Sex, Science, and Stem Cells: Inside the Right Wing Assault on Reason "is a clarion call to restore sanity to the public process of protecting the sexual and reproductive health of all Americans. DeGette writes eloquently against the senseless and hazardous anti-woman agenda of the Bush administration and exposes the political mythologies that jeopardize the health of the American family -- from dangerous abstinence-only programs to bans on vital stem cell research. She is a voice of reason in this ongoing debate."Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America
""Congresswoman DeGette provides an explosive, first-hand account of how the right-wing has manipulated public policy on issues ranging from choice, reproduction, and stem cell research for pure political gain. Her compilation of experiences from inside the halls of Congress reveal how sound-science and scientific evidence have been ignored for far too long. Everyone should read Congresswoman DeGette's book and learn from it." --Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives """Congresswoman Diana DeGette's "Sex, Science, and Stem Cells: Inside the Right Wing Assault on Reason "is a clarion call to restore sanity to the public process of protecting the sexual and reproductive health of all Americans.
