NARRATOR: Christopher Reeve’s family and foundation wanted the people of California to see this recently recorded message.

Mr. CHRISTOPHER REEVE (Paralysis Foundation): My foundation supports cutting-edge research and we are proud, proud supporters of Prop 71. You know, stem cell research has already cured paralysis in animals. Stem cells are the future of medicine. Support Prop 71. Stand up for those who can’t. Thank you.
