It's not better to suppress scientific research.

I'm sure that would get a positive vote from Dr Mengele.

But stem cell research itself is not unethical and should not be suppressed.

What independent evidence is there that has reassured you of the ethical nature of stem cell research, care to share?


Under Bush there were about 22 stem cell lines allowed, some not any good anymore. Now they can use good stem cells. The limitation in use was irrational, absurd, and political.

California has been supportive of stem cell research, which is not surprising, even with Arnold as gov.

Thousands of human embryos are destroyed each year. We can use them for research and eventually save lives.

Stem cells are derived from 4 or 5 day old embryos.

I am very much in favor of in vitro treatments for women who need it, and to use remaining embryos for research. Ethics are something that you decide for yourself when weighing the facts. I have made that decision for myself as we all do. Bringing up Mengele is very insulting.
