What is your souce for this information? I've never heard of this before.
How is it that you don't even understand how adult stem cells are harvested and used yet you think you are qualified to object to embryonic stem cell research?

I hope you know the difference between 'research' and 'therapy'.

You do have one concept down - yes if you use cells from another person there is a risk of rejection. That is beside the point. Embryonic cells are studied and from that research we learned about adult stem cells. We learned how to find the adult cells and learned which genes need to be activated to make them like embryonic cells. We also learn how to coax them to specialize and create different cell types.

That's why opposing embryonic research is stupid. Without understanding embryonic cells how are you going to know how to use the adult stem cells?

What does the use of embryonic cells have to do with birth control?

Why do Christians oppose embyonic stem cell research? Don't those arguements sound similar to the anti-abortion arguments?

I think in this case its really taken to extremes though. It's just a tray of cells... Where is the soul? Huh
