CitizenLink: N.J. Voters Will Decide Stem-Cell Issue

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine signed legislation
Thursday to let voters decide on a 10-year, $450 million plan to use
taxpayer money to fund stem-cell research, including destructive
embryonic stem-cell research.

Corzine was joined by political leaders, scientists and rehabilitation experts, who hailed the referendum, The (Newark) Star-Ledger reports.

Marie Tasy, executive director of New Jersey Right to Life, said:
“Our lawyers are looking very closely at possible deceptions in the
ballot language, especially the fact that this is about taxpayer-funded
human cloning. … This boondoggle will add $37 billion to our
state debt.”
