Madison diocese ends school visits to research facility over embryonic stem-cell research

Catholic World News - September 09, 2013

The Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, has announced that students in Catholic schools will no longer visit the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, because researchers there are engaged in embryonic stem-cell research.

The Institutes for Discovery, based on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, offer workshops for young students in a variety of areas. The Madison diocese said that parochial-school students will no longer take part because some of the workshops involve the destructive use of human embryos.
