According to Talking Points Memo, Jonathan Alter is asking those who failed to override President Bush's veto of Stem Cell Research to sign the following pledge.
“Because of my strong opposition to embryonic-stem-cell research, I hereby pledge that should I, at any point in the future, develop diabetes, cancer, spinal-cord injuries or Parkinson’s, among other diseases, I will refuse any and all treatments derived from such research, at home or abroad, even if it costs me my life. Signed, ______”
I suspect they would sign, take the treatments anyway and then blame it on a family member or staffer. But still a good idea.
