Why I oppose Prop 71
by Rich Deem

The idea of providing cures for diseases is a noble cause, which is why I am personally involved in medical research for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. However, there are many reasons to oppose proposition 71. Most of these reasons are discussed on other pages of this site. However, what really motivated me to sacrifice my time to oppose Proposition 71 was the clear-cut deception used by proponents of the measure. Prop 71 supporters are promising snake oil instead of cures to suffering people to get the taxpayers to fork over a huge welfare program to California biotech companies. Manipulating people who are already suffering and desperate for relief is a heinous evil, and something that I could not idly sit by and watch. I am not a politician and I hate politics. However, I could not stand by in good conscience and allow this to continue without making my voice known.
