Myth 3Embryonic stem-cell research show the most promise
Father Pacholcyzk outlined some 98 different diseases that can be treated using umbilical cord and adult stem cells. Research using adult stem cells is 20 to 30 years ahead of embryonic stem cell research and actually holds greater promise. Currently, there is no scientific evidence where embryonic stem cells have been used successfully in animal trials.
As Sargent Joe Friday would say, just the facts, Ma'am.
If people knew more about this topic, there would be a lot more opposition to ESC.
Especially impressive in view of the fact that they started with embryonic stem cells in 1998 and didn't isolate adult stem cells until 2000.
I know more people in the medical community who REALLY want to believe this one.
Saddam was God's own idea? How preposterous!

Thanks for posting that!
I'd prefer Ron Paul as President, but you're great tag line looks awesome to me too!
I think Paul has admitted he will never be President! Pence can and will win!
Certainly. Saddam had a great deal to say in how he turned out, however.
thanks for the ping, nully...i like the article. it supports what i have to say.
Yeah. I hate to bring facts to a good argument...
Who's arguing? I'm simply disagreeing. :)
May I add the Orthodox Church's stance on fetal cell exploitation...very similar to the Catholic POV:

A niece sent me this link last week. The PDF file is really excellent and has the photo listed above in color. It is a 16 page explanation and easy to understand-even for me!
Just one more source about Dr. Lima's great work.
Dr. Carlos Lima at the Egas Moniz Hospital in Lisbon, Portugal, who has been treating spinal cord injuries using the patient's own adult stem cells.
Just downloaded and will read ASAP. Archived in Pro-Life folder.

Romney delivers on promise to veto stem cell bill
By Theo Emery, Associated Press Writer | May 27, 2005
BOSTON -- Gov. Mitt Romney vetoed a bill Friday that would expand embryonic stem cell research in Massachusetts, but the measure has more than enough support in the Legislature to override the governor's veto.
The House and Senate passed the bill with veto-proof margins, and both chambers were expected to vote next week to override the veto.
You must encourage your fellow parishoners (family, friends) to contact their legislators by calling the State House switchboard at 617-722-2000 or by e-mailing your state senator (click here)and state representative (click here), urging them to support the Governor's final veto before a vote (likely Tuesday, May 31st) and this legislation becomes law!
To find your elected officials:

FORWARD THIS E-MAIL ON TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN MASSACHUSETTS!!!
