Secular Coalition for Arizona speaks up for Science in Committee

Secular Coalition for Arizona was the only group speaking up in committee Wednesday against SB1474: human fetus; embryo; prohibited actions; a bill motivated by the now-discredited infamous "Planned Parenthood" videos released last summer.

Our take: Government policy on the use of fetal tissue should be based on scientific and medical research.

U.S. Scientists have been using such cells for decades to develop vaccines and seek treatments for many different diseases, including neurological disorders, AIDS, Ebola, Parkinson's Alzheimer's, spinal cord injuries, stroke, burns, heart disease, and diabetes, to name just a few.

This tissue plays a vital role in lifesaving medical advances and holds great potential for further breakthroughs.
