Talk to me about proposal 2
I know it's about stem cell research but that's as much as I've heard. If I'm in favor of stem cell research and annoyed by anti-abortion resistance to it, which way do I vote?

Also, proposal 1 is about medical marijuana, right? And if I'm OK with that, I vote yes?

Are there any other proposals?

The proposals can be tricky because sometimes they're worded as a double negative, like if you're OK with medical marijuana you might have to vote "no".

Thanks!

4. the real debate here is the wording in this
says fertility clinics want to "donate" the embryoes which should be allowed, as they throw in the trash what is not used. They frame this around abortion, because they don't want to mention the fertility clinics, to maintain that subject is all about life. In fact, many embryos are thrown in the trash and they don't want to talk about those. They keep the wording on doing the research from embryos, and aquait it with abortion. The fertility clinics are throwing out embryos every day and they don't want people to hear about it. So this is to make it legal to donate what they are not going to use at those clinics. It's the most sensible thing I've heard all through this election cycle!
