Patricia Heaton: Not Everyone Loves Michael J. Fox
Patricia Heaton — who won an Emmy for her work on "Everyone Loves Raymond" — is taking sides in the stem-cell research debate.Well I guess she is just a mindless pretty face. I'm crushed!
She’s put herself on the opposite side of Michael J. Fox, the much-beloved actor who’s been battling Parkinson’s disease since 1991 and is a firm supporter of embryonic stem-cell research.
Heaton is now appearing in a commercial intended to persuade Missouri voters to vote against Amendment 2 on their ballot.
Fox, in his own commercial, urges voters to support the measure and Democrat Claire McCaskill, who is running for U.S. Senate against the incumbent, Jim Talent, a Republican who opposes embryonic stem-cell research.
