Transfer one life to another.

Dear Mr. President:

My name is Ken, 68 years of age and have Parkinson’s for the last nine years and continue to slowly deteriorate. Currently I am the CEO of the National Institute of Community Management which services Home Owners Associations (HOA’s) nationwide. (300,000 associations inhabited by 33,000,000 individuals).

Before you make your final decision on the Veto of the latest “Stem Cell” Bill that has been approved by Congress, I would like you to take into consideration the Following:

Your belief, if I understand it correctly, is that you are “Pro-Life”. If you take that term independently of everything else, I do not think you will find one American who will not agree with you. To disagree they would be saying that they are “Pro Death”. I doubt that you will find one that disagrees with you.

The real question is on the “Stem Cell” issue, are you willing to “Transfer” one Life, the “Stem Cell”, to save another life, my Life.

There are many instances where people will sacrifice their life to save another. If fact you are the world’s leader in approving such a “Transfer” of sacrificing one individual’s life to save many.

You have taken the same stance as what this county was founded upon, to sacrifice ones” life for freedom. But it’s not only Freedom; it’s to save lives of those already here. We will never forget 9/11.

In turn you have authorized troops to go to foreign shores to protect the living at home. Many of those troops will die in order for us to live. (Over 2,500 in IRAQ).

If we took the meaning of “Pro Life” as you may be using to stop the “Stem Cell” law, would you not have to apply that same meaning to call all of our Troops home from IRAQ?

I am not suggesting that you do that. But I am asking you to continue on in following your philosophy, signing the “Stem Cell” bill that will not only save thousands of lives, but millions of American lives. Transfer one life to another.

Thank You,

Age 68
Scottsdale, Arizona
