GiveCuresI’m in Coralville, IA this morning for the launch of Give Cures which is the John Paul II Stem Cell Research Institute’s national gift campaign that raises funds to advance ethical, non-controversial, adult stem cell research for cures and to raise funds to build a cord blood bank so moms can donate their newborn’s cord blood. Give Cures connects people, patients and partners to the life-saving ethical research of the Institute.

Rick Santorum is the special guest who will make a formal announcement at the BioVenture Building (2500 Crosspark Road, Coralville, IA) at 11:00a.  The Give Cures Launch event will also include remarks from Bob Vander Plaats of The Family Leader, Steve Scheffler of Family Faith and Freedom, Kim Lehman, the director of Give Cures and Joe Dunham, Vice President of the John Paul II Research Institute.

Santorum commented on the event, “I look forward to being a part of the Give Cures launch on July 11th. I commend them and their commitment to advancing adult stem cell research as they work to find cures for illnesses, and I applaud them for their dedication to protecting human life.”

You can watch the live stream here which will be live this morning at 11:00am.  Below is a video about Give Cures so you can learn more.

Collin Brendemuehl: Jonah Goldberg’s work is useful. It’s a little short-sighted in its rejection of Burke. He paints a proper picture of the swamp. He understands the problem of Marx and Darwin in politics. And he clarifies the conservative principle well that economic class is mutable.
