Destroying embryo’s in order to create life saving cures and cutting edge treatments is a thing of the past. Embryonic Stem Cell research has yet to produce any cures or treatments and in the scientific community the science behind it is outdated. Yet proponents of Embryonic Stem Cell research want more money.
Matt Bowman writing for CNN Opinion spells this out very well:
Human embryonic stem cell research is the $10,000 toilet seat of the 21st century. Years ago, science created a cell that appears to be, in the words of an MIT study published last month, "virtually identical" to an embryonic stem cell but is cheaper, promises better compatibility to patients and kills no embryos.
