ADULT STEM CELL SCIENTISTS OPPOSE GOVERNMENT’S REQUEST TO LIFT FEDERAL JUDGE’S ORDER ENJOINING UNLAWFUL FEDERAL FUNDING OF RESEARCH INVOLVING THE DESTRUCTION OF LIVING HUMAN EMBRYOS

 

August 24, 2010 FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT ENJOINS THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES (HHS) AND ITS NATIONAL INSTITUTE

Advocates International (AI), part of the public interest legal team along with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher (GD&C) who brought the case before the court more than a year ago, is pleased with the decision of the United States District Court of the District of Columbia yesterday enjoining HHS and NIH from unlawfully expending taxpayer funds on research involving the destruction of living human embryos. The district court’s opinion followed the decision by the United States Court of Appeals earlier this summer finding that doctors doing adult stem cell research have ‘competitive standing’ to sue.

AI Disappointed that Supreme Court Decision Fails to Determine Scope Law Student's 1st Amendment Freedoms in CLS v. Martinez (Ju

The United States Supreme Court announced a narrow ruling today holding that public universities may override a religious student group’s right to determine its leadership only if it denies that right to all student groups in the name of “diversity.” The Court remanded to the courts below the remaining factual questions of whether the government‘s so-called ‘all-comers policy’ lately imposed by the University of California’s Hastings College of Law to exclude recognition of a Christian law student organization at the school is unconstitutional, as applied.

FEDERAL COURT OF APPEAL REINSTATES CASE TO STOP FEDERAL FUNDING OF RESEARCH INVOLVING THE DESTRUCTION OF LIVING HUMAN EMBRYOS

WASHINGTON, DC (June 25, 2010). Today the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued its decision finding that doctors doing adult stem cell research have ‘competitive standing’ to sue. Therefore, the court reinstated the doctors’ federal lawsuit, filed last summer that seeks to preliminarily enjoin and ultimately overturn the controversial guidelines for public funding of embryonic stem cell research that the National Institutes of Health issued on July 7, 2009. The implementation of these guidelines marks the first time that taxpayer dollars will be used to fund research that will result in the destruction of human embryos. Since 1994, Congress has expressly banned NIH from funding research in which human embryos “are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death.”

AI Supports Freedoms of Expression, Religion and Association in CLS v. Martinez (April 18, 2010)

The United States Supreme Court hears oral arguments tomorrow in a case to decide whether a government ‘non-discrimination policy’ being imposed by the University of California’s Hastings College of Law to exclude recognition of a Christian law student organization at the school, based upon its Statement of Christian Faith, constitutes a discriminatory and unconstitutional deprivation of law students rights of free expression, religious free exercise and association.
