Genetically Engineered Stem Cells A Potential Cure For AIDS

Well, it would be stupid to stop stem cell research now. There are new and better techniques which don't require a fetus to obtain stem cells. The stem cells used in this research are taken from the individual's body.

+1 bubble for posting intelligent response and not feeding the troll.

Was it not the case, regardless of the cells origins. The church had a hard line with that kind of research.

My first thought exactly, it's so repugnant... these people who claim to care and then take actions against those things which might help the most.

You just had to bring that up didn't you. Killing fetuses is no longer necessary to produce stem cells so this issue now if only morons like you would do the same.
