It is now possible to harvest embryonic stem cells without killing babies. I would hope that this type of embryonic stem cell research would be acceptable instead.
Nobody is opposing stem cell research that does not involve killing humans.
The irony is that the left and the media focus so much on the “need” for ESC research that they completely ignore the FACT that adult stem cell (including umbilical cord stem cells) research has yielded cures or treatments for over SIX DOZEN diseases and conditions. Private companies are spending billions on adult stem cell research and next to nothing on embryonic stem cell research, and the reason for that is obvious.
