As a Type 1 Diabetes I am experiencing sorrow. I will stop donating to JDRF immediately and I hope others will too.

Fetal stem cells have produced no positive results
Adult stem cells have produced some downright miracles

It’s only about killing babies.

“researchers hands will finally be untied”

When were they tied? All that Bush did was keep my taxes from paying for more killing. Now, in addition to my neighbors mortgage, I have to pay so scientists can play Frankenstein on a bunch of human embryos.

here’s the issue. This was happening all along on a private funding level, from what I understand. All this did is stop government funding which now will be allowed. Scientists love it because now they don’t have to do the hard work to lobby for private funds but can now petition the gov for $ which it will easily dole out along with extra money for support. It’s jut more pork.

I hope the cure is found soon but just because there was a limit on federal funding doesn’t mean research wasn’t being conducted.

Diana DeGette has a daughter with diabetes. I think she really believes a cure will come out of this. A lot of people have been deluded.

I love the logic: this could benefit ME, so who cares if other human lives are damaged?

Be sure to tell them why.

Basically this fool woman is saying she's THRILLED to kill little babies if it may someday, possibly, mean a cure for her illness. But it may not (in fact it probably won't), she will still be ill, and the babies will be dead.

How cruel and thoughtless.

You can develop the virulent brain tumor you have always wanted.

It has nothing to do with religion, or with religious beliefs, but it seems rather strange that a human would have such a callous attitude towards a developing member of the same species.
I would ask them what they think the embryo is. A dog? A sheep? An animal? A plant? No. Of course not.
Something non-living? Obviously not.
If it’s living, then what kind of a living creature is it? Animal? Plant? Extra-terrestrial? Human?

Embryonic stem cells are just nothing more that cover for abortion.

God will judge them......and us too.

The whole fetal stem cell research idea reminds me of an old horror movie script where the femme fatale drinks the blood of virgins to stay attractive. The fact that someone could even think about grinding up unborn babies to do research makes me think of Hitler’s human experiments.

I don’t care what disease I had, I would never ever express joy at the death of something or someone else for the possibility of saving my life.

Somebody write this down, and in five years, when the Adult stem cell research has produced all the results, we can hunt these guys down and ask if they will apologise to the dead babies.

My wife is Type 1 and she is horrified by the stem cell news. She does not want her cure to come from killing embryos.

My Catholic grandmother was diabetic. She would be HORRIFIED at the idea of making her life better at the expense of an unborn child. We should all be crying rivers at this obamanation.

Mike (the author of the article), I just wish they would have started with your fetus a long time ago.
