Stem Cell Controversy

Some links on the embryonic stem cell controversy:

Word around the Net

Human Events Online

Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics

National Review Online

I, for one, would prefer that research continue to center on adult stem cell or stem cells from umblical cords which have shown promise. There are no ethical concerns with those sources.

Furthermore, there is no federal ban on experimentation with embryonic stem cells. That's a point about which many are confused. The question is about whether the federal government should fund it or not. I don't think they should.

But I wish there were....
