11. those cells from the cord are ADULT stem cells not embryonic.
Edited on Wed Jul-28-04 10:21 PM by tandot
Both have their uses and scientists don't yet understand which is better for treating what disease more successfully. Why not use the embryonic cells created in petri dishes instead just throwing them away? Why not help dying and sick children and adults overcome their diseases?

What is more Christian: Throwing those cells (embryos) away or using them to save human life???


on edit: Here is a link for people who are interested in more than just right-wing talking points:

Why don't you do some research yourself?
