Human embryonic stem cells and the Culture of Death
Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - By Judie Brown

Life Legal Defense Foundation of California is making a big splash these days because of its lawsuit against the state of California. This pro-life monkey wrench has been tossed into the $3 billion human embryonic stem cell trough, creating a stir amidst allegations that no proper oversight for the funding was ever established. Researchers were supposed to receive that money so that they could slice and dice our youngest brothers and sisters in search of the mythical treatments some claim embryonic stem cell research will render. Of course there are no such cures! We applaud LLDF for making what we hope is a permanent dent in the machinery of the culture of death.

Any "cure" using human embryonic stem cells would run risks of rejection by the patient, just like with any transplant, in addition to the great uncertainty as to how such basic stem cells will actually develop. Adult stem cells taken from a patient are a perfect genetic match, so there is no danger of rejection. This elementary fact of biology is rarely mentioned in the debate. Meanwhile, investors are dumping embyronic stem cell experimentation and turning to research on adult stem cells. Why should taxpayers anywhere have to pick up the tab for bad science?
