The ad also shows the company that Reichert keeps in opposing this vital research tool. He stands shoulder to shoulder with figureheads of the radical right like Pat Robertson, James Dobson and Tom DeLay.
In addition, the ad contrasts Reichert with those who have good things to say about stem-cell research: The National Institutes of Health, Nancy Reagan, and Republican Senator Orrin Hatch. The message is that Reichert is out of touch with the majority of Americans who support stem-cell reasearch, out of synch with fellow Republicans, and too conservative for his moderate district.
Meanwhile, Reichert’s office put out a press release today with this headline: “Reichert Announces We The People Bookshelf Award to Sammamish High School”
