Why I Wrote a Controversial Book

I truly do not like controversy, but controversy is the natural by-product that materializes whenever someone's belief system is challenged. It goes with the territory of writing a book that causes people to have to deal with the facts. It's our soul's way of saying, "Let's examine this subject and see if perhaps there is another side to the issue that is worth hearing."

I am aware of the healing potential that blastocyst stem cell research offers victims of spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, paralysis, heart disease, and many other illnesses. I want blastocystic (embryonic) stem research funded by the U.S. government. However, other people do not want their tax dollars going to research. Not many people oppose it because they do not want to help others or because they are stingy with their money. The opposition comes from those who have been told that the research is unethical. They have accepted what they have been told without questioning it or doing any research.

I met Reverend Dan Bloodworth in 2005 and immediately became intrigued by his enthusiasm regarding stem cell research. Dan’s All-American athlete son, Brian, suffered a spinal cord injury when he was hit by lightning in 1987. Motivated by his desire to find a treatment that would allow his son to communicate and become mobile again, Dan devoted 16 years of his life to learn everything he could about stem cell research. I was inspired by Dan to write a book containing information he had found. And that is why I wrote Right to Recover: Winning the Political and Religious Wars over Stem Cell Research in America.

The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act has been passed by Congress twice. Influenced by the opinion of narrow-minded politicians and members of the religious community, President Bush’s vetoed the bill twice. His decision and the mindset of the misinformed right-wing ultra-orthodox party must be challenged if our society is to benefit from blastocyst stem cell biotechnology.

Right to Recover is an educational book created in hopes of shedding light upon, and making a difference in, the way we view blastocyst stem cell biology. I am not a doctor or scientist; I am a planetary healer and global citizen involved in bringing peace and goodwill to humankind. I have been blessed with a talent for writing, communication, and doing technical research.

Right to Recover contains well-researched facts about all types of stem cell technology and lends insight into the political and religious issues surrounding blastocyst stem cell technology. I’ve used Biblical references to show why a blastocyst is NOT a human being and how God has given us stem cell technology as a scientific gift for healing. The information in my book was derived from intensive research, personal interviews, emails, and other correspondence with national and international medical doctors, research scientists, religious leaders, and elected officials.

I believe everyone has a right to recover and the government should not stand in our way.
