Q:Since abortion is a frowned upon thing on this blog, I'll go out on a limb and assume you're also against stem cell research. /Why/? Stem cell research literally turns abortion (if you really need to consider that a "bad thing") into a "good thing"; it could help my father, who has suffered from Parkinson's disease for quite awhile. The reason of, "Stem cell research is wrong because you aren't respecting the lives of the children who died for those cells" is utterly ridiculous and disgusting.
We have no problem with adult stem cell research (which has proven to be more useful than embryonic stem cell research). ESCR kills humans. No research, however good the intention, should not be at the expense of a human life.
