The Facts About Embryonic Stem Cell Research vs. Kerry's Misleading Comments
From Insight Scoop 2004:
In the recent "townhall" Presidential debate, John Kerry asserted the need for research using embryonic stem cells to find cures for diseases such as Parkinson's Disease. Of course, even if we could be sure that such research would bring a cure, that wouldn't justify killing embryonic human beings. In fact, though, the case for the medical benefits of embryonic stem cell research is flawed. The U.S. bishops' website lists a number of resources on the subject of stem cell research. Go here. Richard M. Doerflinger, of the U.S. bishops' Prolife Secretariat, addressed the subject before the Senate's subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space. Here are his comments. The new book, The Five Issues That Matter Most, also has a chapter on Stem Cell Research and human cloning. You can find out more about the book by going here.
