Embryonic Stem-Cell Research Follow Up

I wrote in an earlier posting about embryonic stem-cell research. Below is an article along those lines that you might find enlightening:

The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is calling for an end to embryonic stem-cell research and recommends exclusive support for adult stem-cell research. “Not only does embryonic research require taking the life of human embryos, it also prolongs needless suffering by delaying the development of more promising adult stem-cell treatments and cures,” said Dr. Michelle Cretella, fellow of ACP. Research using non-embryonic sources, including amniotic fluid, umbilical cord blood, placenta and adult blood has yielded impressive results, the ACP said.
