Stem Cell Research – Why Are Stem Cells Being Thrown-Out In The Trash?

UPDATED INFORMATION — SENATE PASSES STEM CELL BILL — read more

UPDATED INFORMATION ALSO ATINFORMED VOTERS

This is a one minute video that demonstrates what is currently happening to unused frozen embryos from fertility clinics. The senate will be voting this week to either support Stem Cell Research, or to put more restrictions on it. Please go to my political site “INFORMED VOTERS” to see more information, and to send an Email to the Senate asking them to support Stem Cell Research.

    King Bush sacrifices humans in a war based on a pack of lies,
    But he will not sacrifice human embryos for stem cell research.

  5. Hi Brian,

    I never did understand how someone could be pro-life for embryos, but pro-war/death for actual living, breathing human beings. I would have a lot more respect for the “pro-life” movement, if they actually were pro-life…..it seems to me they should change their name to “pro-embryo”. But even that isn’t true, because as seen in the video; there is no movement to protect these embryos from being thrown in the trash….just from being used to save other peoples lives.

    I think there is a simple answer to the stem cell issue. Let the “parent” of these embryos decide…..not unlike organ donation. The embryos essentially belong to whoever “paid” for the in-vitro treatment…..not the government. We wouldn’t let the government decide whether or not we could donate a family members organs.

  6. We need to ask ourselves, is the squeeze worth the juice regarding the whore stem cell debate.

    It’s true research has shown that the use of stem cells from human embryo can possibly provide cues for some of our most debilitating diseases. And there are those who appose the use of stem cells from human embryo.

    Understand the corporate world is not going to pass on a “Trillion Dollar” opportunity, the Bio-Medical community doesn’t work that way.

    As we speak, researchers world-wide are looking beyond the use of stem cells from human embryo to address MS and spinal cord injuries etc. Given time and Billions of tax payers dollars, researchers will found away to address this issue without causing a nation debate – I pray…

  7. Hi Eric,

    Thanks for the comment. I think you should also check out the video at my political site that explains why embryonic stem cells will be more beneficial to medicine than adult stem cells. It is very interesting, and very hopeful for people with chronic and life threatening illnesses.
