    Ah yes the 'advancement' of science, more stem cells to play with. Wonder if this will give pause to the scientist who are using these stem cells? Would it be better if they used adult stem cells, mucus membrane stem cells or placential stem cells?

    So if they were killing them for their organs, would you be rallying against organ transplantation? Obviously stem cells aren't the issue, killing infants is.

    Certainly killing infants is the issue here. There appears to be no interest in the consumer of these stem cells on where they came from.

    This also illustrates the slippery slope that many on the pro life movement talked about with regard to fetal stem cells. Funny thing is. if these same babies had been killed in the womb rather than post par tum many would be fine with it.

    I do support stem cell research that has delivered results. mucus membrane stem cells, adult stem cells placental stem cells. All have yeilded postitve clinical results that embryonic stem cells haven't.
