One Helps to Save Lives-- One Kills

Embryonic Stem Cells will not do anyone any good. Cord blood stem cells and Adult Stem Cells (bone marrow, etc) WILL and DO help MANY. And no one dies to 'donate' the cells...

Very interesting! I think a big part of the problem is semantic -- that people don't really understand the difference between adult stem cell research and embryonic stem cell research and if they just watch the CBS or NBC news or read their secular newspaper they may never know the difference. This is true especially of many of those who are babyboomers or older.

I like this chart.

God bless,

I agree, most have no idea what is really being spoken about. Those celebrities endorsing use of embryonic don't help much with the sad stories, etc.

Michael Reagan has been on the other side of Nancy and his brother, Ronnie. Many also do not hear anything that Michael says, thinking that he does not know what he is talking about. He does, and he is right.

I like this chart, also, but then, I like the entire website it is on. Even the scoreboard speaks loudly. But the list of different successful uses of adult/cord blood stem cells vs Embryonic is something that one can SEE. And it is growing all the time.

God bless!
