Results from stem cell research

Despite what you might hear in the media and from various celebrities and politicians embryonic stem cell reseach has to date yielded no results. It's a curious thing to consider, given the all of the "potential" that embryonic stem cell research is said to hold and the millions of dollars that have been poured into it.

Adult stem cell research, on the other hand, continues to yield positive medical advances, including these two passed along by Fr. John Molloy, S.D.B.:

Using adult stem cells for this research not only poses no moral dilemna - embryonic stem cells are obtained by the destruction of innocent human life - and actually yields results.

This fact has not yet been accepted by many politicians, scientists and various groups offering grants for scientific research.

  1. But Father, the clamor for embryonic stem cell research has nothing to do with curing disease. It's about justifying abortion. After all, EVERYONE knows that its OK to kill innocent people if other people are saved. Right?
