This could stem the ethical issues

January 7th, 2007

This is very exciting news. It seems some scientests have succeeded in isolating functional stem cells from placentas.

How cool would it be if common afterbirth could lead to a rebirth of possibilities for human stem cells WITHOUT the ethical problems inherent in harvesting the cells from human embyros?

    Don’t get your hopes up. Cord blood is already supposed to be an alternative.

    The liberals don’t like cord blood because they say it’s not as good. What they really mean is it’s not free. Cord blood donation costs money and I know from experience that it’s hard to find a place that will accept it.

    The other thing the liberals don’t see is that it’s probably just as expensive to preserve and transport an aborted fetus. You’re probably not going to get much of value out of the dumpster behind Planned Parenthood.

    This won’t change a thing, embryonic stem cell research is more about abortion/cloning politics than research.
