An Open Letter to Senator Sam Brownback

Dear Senator Brownback,

I recently read an article about a major breakthrough in medical science where Adult Stems cells were used to restore feeling in a paraplegic patient.

“The research, published in the peer-reviewed journal Cythotherapy, centered on a woman who had been a paraplegic 19 years due to an accident.

After an infusion of umbilical cord blood stem cells, stunning results were recorded:

‘The patient could move her hips and feel her hip skin on day 15 after transplantation. On day 25 after transplantation her feet responded to stimulation.’

Umbilical cord cells are considered ‘adult stem cells,’ in contrast to embryonic stem cells, which have raised ethical concerns because a human embryo must be destroyed in order to harvest them.”


Sam, I ask you as a fellow human being to strongly review your current stance on Stem Cell research and start to allow more funding for this technology. I received your last letter on the subject and although I appreciate your quick response, I do not agree with your position.

I realize that change is not easy, but please strongly consider supporting more ideas in this area.

  1. Brownback is part holy warrior part holy fool who doesn’t understand the issue of stem cell research … or anything else for that matter.

    After all it was Brownback who was snookered by the National Organization of Women affiliates and agreed to sponsor a law that makes it a crime for an American man to send a love letter.

    I am talking about the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 a blatantly unconstitutional law that requires American men to submit their personal and criminal history for review before they can communicate with a woman in a foreign country if they use a matchmaking organization.
    Ironically Brownback says he is pro family and pro marriage but yet he compromises his stated beliefs by regulating (PREVENTING) marriages based upon fabricated lies and outrageous fraud being perpetuated by the National Organization of Women insinuating that American men who date foreigners are premediditated torturers, serial rapists and pedophiles.

    Hmm.. Sure is funny that International romance is suddenly such a radioactive pursuit. I wonder how much money the National Organization of Women bilked out of the taxpayers of America evoking moral panic in issues they have a vested interest in to hijack governmental policy.

    Supposedly the National Organization of Women claims the purpose of the law is to protect women. But of course the National Organization of Women lied to the politicians and media spoon feeding their lies over and over by lobbying with thousands (perhaps $ millions) of taxpayers money creating hysteria.
    Meanwhile the only reliable study of abuse involving International marriages was conducted by Immigration Service in 1999 that showed an abuse rate of 1%- far less then the abuse rate for all US couples. scroll to Part II Data Collection and Analysis… then 4) Domestic abuse in mail order marriages

    Well the real purpose of the law is to making it increasingly difficult for American men from seeking or corresponding with foreign women as stated by some jealous feminists in a PR release by the “Promoters of the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act”.

    Welcome to the Senator Brownback’s World of deception where political agenda’s count more than the truth.
