    For it with non-embryonic stem cells or embryonic lines that are not sourced from the aborted.

    for it! even if its embryonic.

    of course im for it because of the potential to save lives and make lives better, logically ill never understand being against it because I havent read or seen any rational to do so.

    Would you support or oppose stem cell research?

    We already have that. Non-embryonic stem cell research has produced around 70-odd therapies to date... embryonic has, last I checked, produced none.

    For it, IF it's non-embryonic. If embryonic stem cells can somehow do better, then I'd be for it.

    We need to be able to cure cancer, etc, if possible.

    I'm very much in favor of stem cell research, regardless of whether or not embryonic stem cells are being used.

    I support stem cell research. I do not support abortion, but since we have abortion anyway at least we can put the dead babies to some use, other than a political talking point. When life give you lemons, you should make lemonade, that's what I was taught.

    100% for it. It has so much potential for good, I just shake my head at anyone who doesn't support it.

    This is pretty much my opinion on it.

    That's because embryonic stem cell research has not been tried in humans, and only minimally in mammals.

    But, the theory is that embryonic stem cells have ability to turn into any cell of the body, whereas adult stem cells do not have that ability.
