Discussions about stem cells need to clearly differentiate autologous stem cells transplants, those from the patient’s own body, from other sources such as human embryos.
My wife underwent successful cancer treatments using her own stem cells. Otherwise, I may have never understood the difference.

Also needs to differentiate adult stem cells, which are taken from a matching, consenting adult donor via a simple process similar to donating any other specific component of blood. Quite ethical, useful, and safe.
