“MORAL BANKRUPTCY BUMP
Benefitting the living with the blood of the slain.”
How did you arrive at that? There are many sources of stem cells that have nothing at all to do with fetuses.
Read the article next time.
True, but, from the article:
"The treatment centres on human embryonic stem cells grown in a laboratory."
The research cell population being used had its genesis in the murder of an innocent, unborn human child. I cannot condone that. Killing one to benefit others? One who cannot choose, to gratify the wants of those who can? Hello, Dr. Mengele? No. Not today, not ever.
There is NO conscionable equivocation for murder.
Now, if you want to do the SAME research using ADULT stem cells -- NOW we're in an entirely different moral universe; one that doesn't require murder. I would bet that this same therapy would be equally successful using adult stem cells or stem cells taken from umbilical cord blood collected postpartum. Both have already shown far greater promise than the highly-touted, and blood-stained embryonic stem cells.
