Right to Recover Winning the Political and Religious Wars over Stem Cell Research in America
Right to Recover Winning the Political and Religious Wars over Stem Cell Research in America is an educational book that sheds light on the way Americans view embryonic stem cell biology. The book contains well-researched facts about all types of stem cell (bone marrow, amniotic and cord blood) treatments presently being used and their restorative effects. It also explores the research being done using stem cells derived from in-vitro fertilized eggs (blastocysts) and presents findings to support its curative potential.
The information in this book was derived from intensive research, personal interviews, emails and other correspondence with national and international medical doctors, research scientists, religious leaders and elected officials as well as stories from patients, who hope to transform their lives through stem cell implants. Bible references are used to show why a 4- to 5-day-old mass of human cells is NOT an embryo and how God has given us stem cell technology as a scientific gift for healing.
The topic of stem cell research is making headlines in every country. You may have read articles and heard stories that are not exactly true. This book will tell the truth on all issues and challenge readers to think for themselves rather than accept the opinion of political or religious leaders. Right to Recover will not present glossed over fairy tales about how stem cells can miraculously cure any disease and it will not promote fear-based rumors people may have heard from the pulpit on Sunday. Instead, the book bravely delves into the political and religious issues surrounding blastocyst stem cell research.
Ignorance is NOT bliss! Get the facts and:
* Know the difference between fertilization and conception
* Learn how new stem cell lines are created
* Understand the truth about cloning
* Explore why an in-vitro fertilized egg is not an embryo
* Learn about the in-vitro process and the four choices a couple has about what to do with their leftover blastocysts
* Why scientists need to explore all the possibilities of stem cells without limiting federal funding to exclude blastocysts.
* Current legislation on stem cell research
With a foreword by Dr. Evan Snyder of Burnham Institute and endorsements from Cure Paralysis Now, Don C. Reed of California’s Prop 71, Christopher Reeve Foundation, personal interviews with an "un-cured" victim exploited by the Prentice List, this book is an accurate picture of what is happening in this scientific field of research.
A galley copy will be presented in June 2007 at Book Expo America 2007 by Nightengale Press. In October 2007, the book will receive foreign rights opportunity at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany.
