Embryonic stem cell research should be banned. Adult stem cell research should continue on. Being a student of molecular biology I believe that adult stem cell research is more promising and more affective when it comes to treating patients. There would be no organ rejection and no immoral aspects to the therapy.

I see nothing wrong with using left over embryo's from fertility clinics (with parents permission) but I don't think we should fund something that creates human life just to destroy it.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
What SHOULD be made criminal is the false hope and promises that have been issued. People actually believe that with stem cell research, Superman could have flown again. We dont KNOW what we may yet know. But until we know (and the research SHOULD continue, but with private funding...believe me...if it will be successful and profitable, the drug companies will be involved), people ought to at least be HONEST about what all it has 'cured' or 'will' cure.

I don't understand how anyone could possibly be against stem-cell development -- there is no risk, no harm, and great benefit.
