Example text

The only difference between an embryonic child and an infant, she says, is size and age. The argument that embryos are merely a clump of cells that do not have spinal nerves or the ability to be self-aware holds no merit, she argues, and questions whether any living person would have chosen to give up their life at the embryonic stage for the sake of science. For these reasons, she argues that destroying embryos that do not have a choice in the matter is murder. As such, Brown concludes that embryos should not be used for stem cell research.

Human stem cells have indeed proven to have great value in the invention of new medical treatments, though it is significant that the only treatments developed to date have involved stem cells acquired nondestructively from nonembryonic sources, including adult donors. Therapies involving the use of adult stem cells are already numerous, whereas therapies derived from embryonic stem cells are still only theoretical. . Wesley J. Smith has called the media coverage of advances in adult-stem-cell regenerative therapies “grudging,” and notes that the favored theme in much media coverage is that embryos hold the key to the future.

What breakthroughs in Toronto, Illinois, and Great Britain does the author discuss, and how do they factor into her argument? V ery early in my life I learned a valuable lesson: when you manipulate the truth, you not only distort the subject you are discussing but you bring shame upon yourself as well. As I have read the various news reports dealing with the [Democratic majority leader Nancy] Pelosi push for limitless funding of human embryonic stem cell research, I have been reminded of that lesson more times than I care to tabulate.
