Stem Cell Research Breakthrough
For those of you who may not have seen the announcement in your local paper, there has been a confirmed breakthrough in this morally "dicey" area. It does not seem to be part of a campaign to raise funds for further research as too many of these kind of announcements seem to be.
A group of researchers announced that they had "...successfully reprogrammed human skin cells into cells indistinguishable from embryonic stem cells.”
Here's what one conservative commentator, Chuck Colson, had to say about the event and the future of stem cell research controversy.
Now It's Your Turn!: Please share how you feel and what you think about what you've just read. For
example: "Are you in favour or opposed to stem cell research and why?" or "In light of the new announcement, should stem cell research be totally banned or not and why?" (My 'Comment Section', in which you can share anonymously, will open to you when you click on "comments" immediately below this post.
