AP admits: ‘Adult stem cell research far ahead of embryonic’

Catholic World News - August 02, 2010

The Associated Press is drawing attention to a truth that pro-life advocates have noted for the past decade: embryonic stem-cell research, which involves the killing of human persons, has failed to fulfill the promises of miracle cures put forward by its proponents, while adult stem-cell research-- which is morally licit-- is successfully being used to treat a host of conditions.

    Bite your lip, AP! This is heresy! Embryonic stem cell research is about to cure death itself! We will live forever with embryonic stem cells...just give the researchers a year or two or three!
