Stem Cell Research

Stem Cell Research:  Right to Life of Southwest Indiana supports adult stem cell research, but opposes embryonic stem cell research.  Embryonic stem cell research results in the death of a developing human being.  Adult sources of stem cells are umbilical cords and placentas.  More than 70 diseases have been treated as a result of adult stem cell research.  Zero diseases have been treated as a result of embryonic stem cell research.
