Horrific Story on Stem Cells

Sometimes it seems that every celebrity has spoken out for stem cell research. They would have us believe that it is only stupidity and selfishness that keeps us from thoroughly investigating this new medical route. Not so fast! Those opposed to or questioning stem cell research generally do so from an ethical and/or religious perspective.

I'm not going into the details on this family-friendly blog, but the BBC has news from the Ukraine about the horrific way they may be getting some of those stem cells. It's a short little article. Please read it.

Ok. I read it.

Looks like they are going after bone marrow stem cells. The debate in the U.S. is over embryonic stem cells which of course you can not get from a baby, but only from an embryo.

The use of bone marrow stem cells and blood stem cells has yielded results and is going on largely without debate or controversy (unitl now).

Just the opposite is true of embryonic stem cells.

Killing live babies for stem cells would be my definition of evil.
