it's disgusting that organizations like these all pretend not to be affiliated with one another. Clearly, you were able to research all the ties and expose the connections. Why isn't The Press, Wood TV 8, WZZM and other media enterprises NOT exposing the same? Doesn't anyone in GR do investigative reporting anymore other than this web site?

i appreciate your exposure on this issue as voting season approaches. ESC is important to me as it ties into life issues. The media and many politicians have been foot loose and fancy free on the truth and have blinded much of the public on what it really is. Groups that tie in like these behind the scenes are part of the problem.

and how disingenious for Heartwell to play up Christian groups like Catholics and pro-life when he was up for re-election, but on the side network and support groups like these. He shows what a two faced politician he really is.

thanks for the article. It was very interesting to see all the back door links. Interesting, but not surprising. It's important that everyone knows the connection before they fill out a ballot this November.


The Executive Director

Hello, James.

The information was not difficult to get. About fifteen minutes on the internet and I had all of the documents showing the corporate relationship between all three entities. So the mainstream media has no excuse for not knowing about this.

Whether or not there has been a violation of IRS regulations, clearly MCSCRC is ethically compromised as an objective voice on embryonic stem cell research. That can be reported as a matter of fact and not opinion, so the local MSM should have done so for the simple reason that this is news for the voters.

Finally, thanks for the kind words.

Bill Tingley
Executive Director, L.A.W.

L.A.W. Highlights

  • Yeah, and Summer is Hotter Than Winter
    The Grand Rapids Press ignores science to promote feel-good politics on the environment and becomes the watchdog that doesn't bark.
  • When Will It Stop?
    Enough of the repulsive tactic of accusing everyone of bigotry who doesn't kowtow to the racemongers.
  • Thirty-Six Bucks
    Balancing the City budget: Maybe it's time for those making a living on the taxpayer's dime to give up a little instead of sticking it to the taxpayer one more time.
  • The Problem With Teachers
    Why teachers are the professionals least suited to run a school district -- or even a school.
  • The Pig in the Python
    The dirty little secret behind the success and failure of every school reform that the education establishment, the public school bureaucrats, and the teachers unions will never reveal.
  • The Fool's Gold of a College Education
    Most kids who get a college degree today have nothing but an expensive credential that lands them a job that any high school graduate could have gotten a generation ago -- WITHOUT the heavy burden of paying back a student loan.
  • The Fixer
    A four-part series about the local attorney behind the demise of Autodie, Butterworth Hospital, Amway, and Old Kent. Warning: Strong accusations of corruption, greed, and skullduggery. Not for the feint of heart.
  • Poison
    The nasty nature of the 26,000 tons of poison that The Boardwalk's developers dug up and then dumped upon the rest of us.
  • No Honor Among Thieves: The Demise of Quixtar
    The re-branding of Amway as Quixtar put lipstick on the pig, but none of the crappy way of doing business changed. Now comes public scrutiny around the world to control its kingpins and clean up the dirty "tools" business.
  • Lost Cause
    A story of how River City lost its way to a secure economic future.
  • Living Wage Kills Jobs
    City pols support a Marxist policy that, like all Marxist policies, hurt the very people they say it will help.
  • El Dorado, Big Rock Candy Mountain, and the Grand Rapids Public School District
    Those of us not in straitjackets are fairly certain that lands of fabulous wealth free for the taking do not exist. No El Dorado, no Big Rock Candy Mountain, no Shangri-la, and no GRPS with money growing on trees.
  • Defenders Who Do Not Defend
    Excessive plea-bargaining, lack of preparation, shoddy to non-existent representation, conflicts of interests are rife among lawyers taking public defender cases on the taxpayer dime.
