A reader e-mailed us that the headline of our previous article, "Big Sister's Slice-and-Dice-the-Babies-for-Science Proposal Nearly on Ballot", was deceptive. The reason? The appearance of Big Sister a.k.a. G.R. Mayor George Heartwell at a conference last fall promoting the ballot proposal doesn't make it HIS proposal. Perhaps, but Big Sister did more than appear at an event hosted by the Michigan Citizens for Stem Cell Research and Cures. MCSCRC is the force behind the November ballot proposal to legalize the destruction of embryonic human beings by researchers, and Big Sister sits on the organization's Board of Directors. So, it is his proposal.
P.S. Nick DeLeeuw reports that Big Sister's proposal has gotten enough petition signatures to put on this November's statewide ballot. Now we'll see in a few months' time whether obfuscations, lies, and utilitarianism hold greater sway with the voters than commonsense, truth, and respect for human dignity.
