About 2 days ago, a dr. John B. Gurdon (has funny hair) and a jap called Shinya Yamanaka, got the Nobel Medicine award for developing an experimental way to turn matured cells back into stem cells. And not just any stem cells, but embryonic stem cells. The kind that babies have in the first 10 days of conception... because after that they evolve in some other kind of cells. These are the most valuable kind of cells because pre-natal embryonic stem cells can mature in basially ANY KIND OF HUMAN CELL.
So yes, I do support fully stem cell research when this method becomes fully operational.
UNTIL THEN: I only support stem cell research from post-natal stem cells that are mostly harvested from the umbilical cord. It is important to note that embryonic stem cells only have a 10 day lifespan after the fecundation process is made.
I support stem cell research 100% of the time.

I don't understand why these people are stopping us from reaping these scientific benefits. Imagine if certain cells could be manipulated in order to cure certain diseases and disabilities?
There needs to be more of a push to break these chains.
I support stem cell research regardless of where the cells come from.
Let me paint you a picture. What if... you were a single child and you wanted to have a baby brother or a younger sister to play with. You then find out your mother is pregnant because you hear them speak about it... then, they go and kill your baby brother in order for him stem cells to be harvested for scientific research.
How would that make you feel? Would you still support them regardless of where they came from?
I'm for it and I don't care where the cells come from.
