Green Responds to Stem Cell Slams

In the days leading up the the state Democratic Convention, the Doyle camp and DPW has been slamming Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Green's stances on stem cell research, with the governor's re-election campaign claming Green will "shut it down" in a letter Thursday foreshadowing what to look forward to during the convention. A later DPW release says Green hopes to "criminalize" stem cell research methods.

Green snapped back today in a series of releases, saying the real point where Green and Doyle disagree on is cloning. Green also disputes Doyle's implication that the Republican has not been supportive of diabetes research, saying he helped add more than $120 million in government spending for research.

Green also points to his co-sponsorship of the "Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005" that aids cord blood stem cell research. Green also talks of his support for the "Alternative Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies Enhancement Act" allowing the NIH for testing of certain emryonic-like stem cells.

"To try and paint me as opposed to medical research is not just over-the-top politics, it is an insult to me and the people I care about who are suffering with illness," Green said in the release.
