Toronto, April 30, 2004 ( – Canada’s National Pro-Life political organization, Campaign Life Coalition, reveals in its May newsletter 12 specific reasons why Canadians who valiantly opposed the Liberal governement’s stem cell bill for almost three years were in the end unable to stop it. CLC says the reasons were:  1. The lack of religious leadership;  2. Large pharmaceutical companies pushing for embryonic stem cell research;  3. A media that failed to report the truth about embryonic stem cell research;  4. A media that would not report the truth about the government’s claims about what C-6 (C-13) did and did not do;  5. The government ignored the Standing Health Committee’s recommendations on Allan Rock’s draft proposal;  6. Reproductive technologies are a complicated issue;  7. The government further complicated the issue needlessly;  8. A disengaged public;  9. The government made a deal with the NDP to get C-13 passed;  10. The Standing Senate Committee on Science and Technology was rigged to not hear Campaign Life Coalition or any other pro-life groups;  11. The rush to get it passed;  12. At the last minute, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops undermined all the efforts pro-lifers had put in over the previous three years attempting to have the legislation amended or defeated;  To read the explanations of the 12 points, as well as articles on other critical developments on the life issues see the complete May 2004 CLC National News at:
