48314 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     I don’t want my tax dollars to fund research that uses stem cells derived from human embryos resulting in their death. The killing of one class of humans to benefit another class of humans is profoundly wrong. Instead, please direct research toward adult and cord blood stem cells, which is ethical and has proven to be successful.

 
48315 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Bush’s policy did not encourage killing human embryos. As we know Obama has overturned that previous policy as he seems to be pro-death in every area! Your agency has the job of drafting guidelines. We are sure you know of the lack of success using embryonic cells and also the good results using adult stem cells. Surely everyone involved are aware of the dire state of U.S. economy. There is no money to SPEND on already failed procedures. This topic is hardly totally understood by the average person, including us But we do know the killing of human life of any stage is unethical and inhumane.

 
48316 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Gentlemen:

I am opposed to your draft guidelines for embryonic stem cell research, which would require me as a taxpayer to subsidize research requiring the destruction of human life.

Support should be directed to adult stem cells, umbilical cord blood stem cells and induced pluripotent stem calls. Every single one of the successes in treating patients with stem cells thus far (for spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis, for example) have involved adult or umbilical cord blood stem cells, not embryonic.

 
48317 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Dr. Kington, It is troubling that the National Institutes of Health plans to use federal funds for stem cell research that requires destroying live human embryos. It is appalling that some members of Congress want an even broader policy, encouraging the deliberate use of in vitro fertilization or cloning to produce human embryos for stem cell research. Such creation of new life solely to destroy it would mark the final reduction of human beings to mere objects or commodities. Please oppose any use of my tax dollars to promote destructive embryonic stem cell research or any form of human cloning. Instead please support adult stem cell research, which is ethically sound, harms no one, and is already helping suffering patients with dozens of conditions.

48320 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     These comments are submitted to the National Institutes of Health ("NIH") By *****, Ph.D. from *****, University of Wisconsin, Madison in response to the Request for Comments published at Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 77 / Thursday, April 23, 2009 / Notices / Pages 18578-18580 Introduction Research studies in my laboratory are focused on finding new and effective methods to treat type I diabetes, a disease caused by the autoimmune destruction of insulin producing cells in the pancreas. Human organ transplantation is used to provide new insulin producing cells to diabetic patients, but due to a shortage of donor organs, this method cannot be used for treating the majority of patients. The development of effective methods to generate insulin-producing cells from human embryonic stem cells would allow scientists to generate an unlimited supply of much needed insulin producing cells to treat diabetic patients. As a scientist, I was elated by the Executive Order (Order 13505) that President Barack Obama signed on March 9, 2009. The order was designed to remove limitations previously placed on human stem cell research. I applaud President Obama for his leadership on research involving human stem cells and I am heartened by the lifting of restrictions on federal funding for promising and responsible stem cell research. In remarks made upon the signing of the Executive Order, President Obama promised to deliver the change that so many have worked for during the last eight years: "we will vigorously support scientists who pursue this research. And we will aim for America to lead the world in the discoveries it one day may yield." The Executive Order assigned NIH the responsibility for the draft Guidelines that are the subject of this Request for Comments. My expectation was that the Guidelines would permit funding of research on additional human embryonic stem (hES) cell lines beyond those currently approved for NIH funding. However, a careful analysis indicates that instead of promoting the President's vision of allowing and encouraging federal funding for research on hES cells, the draft Guidelines would have the consequence of thwarting the President's promises by making currently approved hES cell lines and hundreds of existing but currently un-approved hES cell lines ineligible for NIH funding. These existing hES cell lines would become ineligible for NIH funding because the eligibility criteria in the draft Guidelines are more restrictive than previous eligibility criteria that were considered reasonable and ethical at the time when these cell lines were created. The practical consequence of adopting the draft Guidelines would be to limit hES cell research funding to a few as yet unidentified existing cell lines that meet the new eligibility criteria and new hES cell lines that may be generated in the future. I contend that this would have a significant negative impact on hES cell research in the U.S. I recommend that the NIH "grandfather-in" the human ES cell lines that are currently approved for NIH funding to allow their continued use in NIH-funded research. These NIH-approved hES cell lines have been widely distributed and used already and serve as reference cell lines for the hES cell research community. The goal of the new guidelines should be to promote responsible human embryonic stem (hES) cell research, not to hinder it. Therefore the guidelines should set out criteria that are easy to implement and follow. I believe that the guidelines should be prospective to ensure that all new hES cell lines adhere to ethical guidelines such as those promoted by the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) ("Guidelines for the Conduct of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research", www.isscr.org/guidelines/) or the National Academy of Sciences ("Guidelines for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research" (dels.nas.edu/bls/stemcells/guidelines.shtml). However, I do not believe that every provision of the guidelines should be applied retrospectively to earlier, extensively studied, hES cell lines that met ethical guidelines that existed at the time they were produced. Cell lines that previously met then-existent ethical guidelines include most of those currently approved for NIH funding as well as many other hES cell lines such as those produced at Harvard University (wAVAv.mcb.harvard.edu/melton/HUES/) or internationally (www.ukstemcellbank.org.uk/). Existing hES cell lines represent a wealth of genetic diversity that cannot be replicated quickly or easily. Ending funding for these cell lines and waiting until new lines are derived in accordance with new NIH guidelines will slow the field, to the detriment of the people waiting for new diagnostics, faster ways to test new drugs, and the development of new regenerative therapies. Indeed, some of the existing hES cells lines are currently being used by companies and medical centers in clinical trials and the development of drug efficacy and toxicity testing methods. Hence, I strongly recommend that the NIH guidelines reflect the extraordinary human value of existing hES cells lines that were produced under then-existent ethical guidelines. Instead of using the draft Guidelines to establish eligibility criteria for the funding of hES cell research, I recommend that the NIH place the donation of materials for hES cell research within the framework of the Common Rule and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) system (www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubiects/guidance/45cfr46.htiTi). which provide a sensible, well-developed regulatory system for the protection of human donors of tissue. The Common Rule supports ethically responsible and scientifically worthy research by: (1) Requiring independent oversight such as through IRBs which have extensive experience reviewing informed consent in the context of human tissue research; (2) Ensuring a process for voluntary informed consent including the review of consent procedures performed outside the United States; and (3) Requiring no undue inducements to donors. Additional eligibility criteria not covered by the Common Rule, unique to the use of donated embryos for hES cell line derivation could be appended to the IRB approval process. Institutions represented by an IRB would provide an assurance that the hES cell lines conform to the Common Rule and any additional policies specific to hES cells.

 
48321 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     I am writing to commend President Obama and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the stated intent of expanding stem cell research initiatives. The newly endorsed approach is a significant improvement over the restrictive 2001 funding policy for embryonic stem cell research. I would like, however, to offer certain suggestions which might serve to enhance the new administration's stated intent, since the current NIH draft guidelines for this research pose a number of impediments. I, therefore, recommend that references to acceptable stem cell lines be amended in order to make them more appropriately inclusive relative to "informed consent". This suggestion has particular relevance to the many lines that are already being utilized and which under the proposed guidelines would not qualify for federal funding. This situation can easily be corrected by agreeing to fund work on stem cell lines that were derived in an ethically responsible manner according to best practices and oversight at the time the particular research was begun. To not make this change would put at significant risk important work which is already underway. In addition, I believe that it is important for NIH guidelines to be changed to include the possibility of federal funding for parthenogenesis and for somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) research. There is currently important research being conducted which would otherwise be seriously jeopardized if this work could not qualify for new funding. NIH might want to consult the guidelines of the Stem Cell Research Advisory Committee of the State of Connecticut pertaining to all of these issues. The Connecticut guidelines stress the need to abide by rational standards for the ethical derivation of stem cell lines and research pertaining to these lines with IRB and ESCRO accountability and oversight. I also would like to urge NIH to develop a registry of all approved stem cell lines. This would facilitate research and save both time and dollars by eliminating the need for researchers and their institutions to conduct their own individual reviews of stem cell lines. NIH should also consider creating a catalogue of all ongoing research. This catalogue would facilitate potential collaboration between researchers both in the United States and around the world. In summary, the amending and the expanding of the proposed NIH draft guidelines to more easily "grandfather in" significant research which is already underway in order to make this research eligible for federal funding is extremely important. As previously noted, it is also critical to allow funding for parthenogenesis and for SCNT. All of these amendments will significantly increase the chances for urgently needed medical breakthroughs which are vitally important for so many individuals. As you know, the benefits of embryonic stem cell research will be transformational and will change the way in which medicine is practiced in the 21st century. By unleashing the vast potential to cure debilitating maladies, we will also help to control health care costs. At the same time, we will be creating new jobs in the biomedical sector in our country. Most importantly, we will be creating hope for so many who are desperate for hope. Sincerely, *****, D.D.S.

 
48322 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     We strongly oppose the destruction of embryonic stem cells for body parts and cloning. We can never reconcile taking a human life, in any stage or form, to create or save another life. We will strive to keep our tax dollars or any other monetary source from funding this research. Thank you for your consideration of our viewpoint.

 
48323 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     To Whom It May Concern: We are members of ***** Baptist Church's "Defenders of the Family Ministry Team", and we are writing today to oppose the draft guidelines proposed by the National Institutes of Health in response to President Obama's Executive Order 13505 issued on March 9, 2009. The proposed regulations will force taxpayers like us to subsidize unethical research that destroys human embryos. Despite the millions of dollars spent on destructive embryonic stem cell research in California and elsewhere, the results have been an abject failure because embryonic stem cells tend to become deadly tumors. Science has surpassed this unethical research, producing astonishing advances with adult stem cells and discovering ways to make embryonic-like stem cells without killing anyone. Funding should be directed to alternatives to embryonic stem cells which are ethical and more efficient, effective, and are actually treating patients. The proposed regulations create a financial incentive for the creation of more human embryos to be destroyed to obtain their embryonic stem cells. These regulations also open the door to cloning and human/animal hybrids. Embryonic stem cell research is destructive and outdated, and taxpayer monies should be used for ethical research that can actually treat patients.

 
48324 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Please reconsider your ethically responsible and scientifically worthy decisions regarding embryonic stem cell experimentation. The careful wording insisting the stem cells are not the human embryo fails to cover up the reality that a human person at his or her most vulnerable stage is being killed to obtain those cells. The statement that "perhaps the most potential use of human embryonic stem cells is the generation of cells and tissues that could be used for cell-based therapies" remains only "perhaps" and" potential". The true facts are that amazing strides are already being made using adult stem cells, placental stem cells and other methods not involving embryonic stem cells. I am ashamed of our American Government and our American scientists for their insistence on pursuing something so ethically irresponsible and scientifically unworthy. When did we stop holding in high regard the individual person's dignity from conception to natural death? I will pray for your grave decisions, not only for the sake of the embryonic boys and girls who will be killed in the name of science (sounds like the Nazi regime, doesn't it?) but for our society that will only see what it wants to see, like the people in the story of The Emperor's New Clothes. May the Spirit of truth guide you to all truth. Amen.

 
48325 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Dr. Kington and Stem Cell Guidelines Committee: To comply with President Obama's Executive Order #13505: Removing Barriers to Responsible Scientific Research Involving Human Stem Cells, the proposed Guidelines posted in the Federal Register April 23, 2009, need to be amended as follows: I. no suggested changes. I. A. no suggested changes II.B. should read: "Eligibility of human pluripotent stem cells: Human pluripotent stem cells may be used in research using NIH funds if the cells were derived from human embryos or oocytes donated for research purposes for which documentation for the following can be assured: II.B.(l) and (2) no suggested changes II.B. (3) "...where the embryos or oocytes were donated..." II.B. (4) delete II.B. (5) should read: "At the time of donation, donors were informed that they retained the right to withdraw consent until the embryos or oocytes were actually used for research. II.B. (6) should read: "The attending physician responsible for clinical care and the researcher proposing to utilize human pluripotent stem cells should not have been the same person. II. B. (7) should read: "Informed consent was obtained from individual(s) who elected to donate human embryos or oocytes for research purposes. Such informed consent should comply with human subjects research guidelines such as those proposed by the National Academy of Science or other bodies who have carefully considered human pluripotent stem cell research such as the International Society for Stem Cell Research, or recognized human subjects review committees." II. B. (7. a. - i) delete II. C. no suggested changes II. A. and B. no suggested changes FV. A. no suggested changes, could be combined with III. IV.B. delete It is clear that the suggestions above are recommendations formulated by Dr. Kiessling, PhD, however I personally believe that research conducted with the consent of responsible adults is critical to the health of our nation and opposition to such research seems criminal in and of itself.

 
48326 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Staff at NIH: I am writing concerning the new guidelines which are being drafted on embryonic stem cell research. I am not a scientist, but am writing to you to let you know that as a human being and a tax-payer, I think it is very wrong to conduct and fund this type of research. Humans should not be killed for experimentation. I urge you to reconsider this and to please keep funding adult stem cell research as it has proven to be effective and I'm sure with all the great minds working on this type that many more health benefits will be found in the years to come.

 
48327 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Friends: The new stem cell regulations are of serious concern to me. I oppose killing human embryos. As a taxpayer I will be forced to fund the killing of embryos. That is shocking and unfair and dictatorial. Furthermore, there is no evidence that the human embryos have cured any ailment. Please consider my opinion on this important subject!

 
48328 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     To Whom It May Concern: According to an article in the May 17, 2009 Sunday Patriot, Harrisburg, PA newspaper our voice can be heard and taken into consideration on the subject of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. We believe human life begins at the time of conception and that person has all the rights we all enjoy. Basic Biology teaches when a human sperm and a human egg fertilize, a new human life begins. We do not believe you should take a life to give a life. We need to protect all human embryos. At all cost keep the sanctity of human life the highest priority. We understand adult stem cells can be used so why not use more funds to do research in that area. Please pray for guidance and discernment in your research and forming guidelines in the use of taxpayer's funds. Thank you for your time and consideration of our view on this very important subject.

 
48329 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     To Whom It May Concern: I totally disagree with the guidelines for embryonic stem cell research, which forces me as a taxpayer of thirty-five years and my husband who has paid taxes for forty years, to fund research for the destruction of precious human life!!! No human cloning should be taking place in research labs.All loopholes should be closed immediately. I believe that life is a precious creation from God only. I believe as an American I have the right to believe in God as my Creator America is a Democracy. Our Constitution guarantees citizens freedom of their choice when it comes to religious beliefs. May God have mercy on our country. Let us all start praying as a nation so we can have peace in our country. I will continue to pray for America everyday.

 
48330 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Gentlemen: As a taxpayer I am opposed to your draft guidelines to implement President Obama's March 9, 2009 Executive Order on government funding of destructive embryonic stem cell research. Instead, support should be given to adult stem cells, umbilical-cord blood stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, which are already producing good results. The above would, therefore, eliminate the need for the creation and destruction of human embryos or human cloning.

 
48331 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to oppose the draft guidelines proposed by the NIH in response to President Obama’s Executive Order issued this past March. As taxpayers, we would be force to support financially, research that we feel is morally wrong; the destruction of human embryos.

Despite the millions of dollars spent on destructive embryonic stem cell research, the results have been a failure. For one thing, embryonic stem cells tend to become tumors. Secondly, I know of not one improvement in a human patient with any of the several diseases and conditions which embryonic stem cells are supposed to successfully treat.

On the other hand, science has surpassed this unethical research and produced astounding advances with adult stem cells and discovered ways to make embryonic-like stem cells without killing anyone. A number of actual human patients have experienced astounding improvement in their conditions after being treated with adult stem cells.

Funding should be directed toward alternatives to embryonic stem cells. These alternatives are ethical and more efficient, effective, and are actually treating patients.

The proposed regulations create a financial incentive for the creation of more human embryos to be destroyed to obtain their embryonic stem cells. These regulations also open the door to cloning and/or human-animal hybrids.

Embryonic stem cell research is destructive and outdated, and taxpayer monies should be used for ethical research that can actually treat patients.

We are writing today to oppose the draft guidelines proposed by the NIH in response to President Obama’s Executive Order issued this past March. As taxpayers, we would be force to support financially, research that we feel is morally wrong; the destruction of human embryos.

Reports have shown that embryonic stem cell research has been a failure because of causing a more serious physical condition, that of stem cells tending to become deadly tumors. At the same time, great advances have been shown with research using the adult stem cells without the dangers involved in using embryonic stem cells and more appalling the killing of a human embryo.

Our tax money can be better spent in the further research of adult stem cells that can actually help patients and not put them at further risk.

 
48333 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Organization Americans for Cures Foundation   To Whom It May Concern: We, the board of Americans for Cures Foundation, support the advance of stem cell research. With more than 100,000,000 children, men and women suffering incurable disease in America alone, and with an economy at risk from the accompanying burden of medical debt, it is crucial that the number of cell lines available for study and therapy be increased. The Presidential decree for a revision of the human stem cell guidelines has been met with standards that would substantially and adversely interfere with critical medical research for chronic disease. These flaws must be addressed, lest they impair funding for vital work performed over the last decade. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, considered by many to be the finest research funding institute in the world, has studied the proposed new guidelines in depth, and proposed a reasonable and substantive response. The board of Americans for Cures Foundation is proud to align ourselves with the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine's position on the National Institutes of Health guidelines for human stem cell research. Please see attached position from California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. www.cirm.ca.gov/sites/default/files/PDFs/Final CIRMComments%20NIH guideline s%20vl2 1 5 21.pdf Sincerely, Americans for Cures Foundation Board of Directors

 
48334 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Sir/Madam:

I oppose the destruction of embryonic stem cells for body parts and cloning. I object to tax dollars to pay for this research.

Thank you

 
48335 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     To: The National Institutes of Health

Upon your request, we, the undersigned wish to voice our comments concerning the Draft Guidelines on Embryonic Stem Cell Research. We, the undersigned, do not feel that destroying the life of an unborn baby is “ethically responsible”. Destroying a life is murder. This is in no wise ethical. Good ethics are for the betterment of all—even the unborn. Furthermore, despite all of the years and money that have been spent on embryonic stem cell research, there has been no cure found for people’s illnesses. Adult stem cell research, on the other hand, has proven to be successful in curing over 70 diseases. Embryonic stem cell research is not “scientifically worthy”. Also, any research that involves the intentional destruction of a person’s life is not in accordance with any existing law. It is quite the contrary. Our United States Constitution grants the right to life for all people—even those in their mother’s womb! It is scientific fact that an embryo is a real person. The moment an embryo is conceived, all the DNA required to make that person individual from every person in the world, is present. An unborn cat is a kitten, an unborn adult is an embryo (unborn baby). Each unborn child has the right to life, just like every born person! Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” In addition, federal funding should not be used in the unethical research and murder of babies! Our tax dollars should not be used to promote the destruction of life. Our tax dollars should be used in research that is harmless and helpful to society. That is the ethical choice.

 
48336 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Director: I am writing to oppose Embryonic Stem Cell Research. This research is not ethical and immoral. There is no need to develop embryonic stem cells for this research. There are other sources of Stem Cells. Adult Stem Cells have been used successfully. Another source of Stem Cells is found in the after birth, the placenta. Why isn't this source of stem cells promoted? This research is not ethical and immoral because a potential human life is lost in the process of the research let alone the means of obtaining embryonic stem cells. President Obama's statement, "Removing barriers to responsible research involving human stem cells" is an abomination. He is attacking those who oppose Embryonic Stem Cell research on the basis of Religious belief. Faith and Science cannot contradict each other. Both are searching for the truth. Killing a potential human being to save the life of another human being is immoral. Mr. Obama has his priorities confused. I resent the fact that my tax money is being spent for immoral purposes. A few examples of this include using tax money to promote abortions here and abroad. Embryonic Stem Cell research and the study to get prostitutes in China to drink less. Thank you for your consideration of this letter.

 
48337 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     Dear Sir: I oppose killing human embryos. The proposed regulations will force taxpayers like me to fund research I believe is unethical because it requires the killing of human embryos. Expanding funding to new human embryonic stem cell lines will divert federal funds away from promising research that is treating people now with non-embryonic stem cells and will also divert funds away from other sources of embryonic-like stem cells that have been generated without the use of human embryos. The proposed regulations create a financial incentive for the creation of more human embryos to be destroyed to obtain their embryonic stem cells. The guidelines do not require any separation between an IVF doctor and an ESCR researcher. The guidelines say they "should" be separate, but only when practicable. The guidelines allow any IVF doctor to create more embryos than are needed for fertility purposes in order to generate more so-called "leftover" embryos for ESCR research using taxpayer funds. Instead of preventing any future expansion of funding for ESCR on unethical experiments involving human clones and human-animal hybrids, these regulations open the door for such funding upon the order of NIH. The guidelines do not require full informed consent for the parents of the human embryos so that they understand that their options include permission for infertile couples to adopt them. Please do not fund embryonic stem cell research. All indications are that adult stem cells are healing people. Please use funds to support adult cell research. As well, blood cord stem cells of newborns also are producing positive results.

 
48338 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     We strongely oppose Embrionic Stem rearch, since it nesecitates the killing of a human person. On the the other hand Adult stem reseach, which is proving successful and does not reqire murder, we most strongly support.

 
48339 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     We oppose the use of any federal funds for research on human embryonic stem cells. Please do not use our tax dollars for this type of experimentation or research. We are in favor of adult stem cell experimentation and research—provided it is performed in the proper realm (i.e. not taking the life of another human person - or the potential right of another human person as embryonic stem cell use certainly would be). Thank you for providing us this public comment

 
48340 05/26/2009 at 11:00:00 PM Self     I am opposed to your draft guidelines for embryonic stem cell research, which force me as a taxpayer to subsidize research requiring the destruction of innocent human life. Support should be directed to stem cell research and treatments that harm no one and are already producing good results. In no case should government support be extended to human cloning or other morally reprehensible creation of human embryos for research purposes.
