If the end does not justify the means - what can?
The end doesn't justify the means.
The best that can be said about embryonic stem cell research is that it is scientific exploration into the potential benefits of killing human beings.
To date, embryonic stem cell research has not produced a single medical treatment, where ethical, adult stem cell research has produced some 67 medical miracles.
Embryonic stem cell research has the potential to alleviate so much suffering. Surely, by working together we can harness its life-giving potential.
Well, there are two kinds of stem cells: adult stem cells, which you can get from any part of a grown body, and embryonic stem cells. These are the inner- core of days-old embryos that can develop into any kind of cell.
Under current federal policy on human embryonic stem cell research, only those stem cell lines derived before August 9, 2001 are eligible for federally funded research.
More important is the fact that embryonic stem cell research could lead to new treatments and cures for the many Americans afflicted with life-threatening and debilitating diseases.
Most of the scientific community believes that for the full potential of embryonic stem cell research to be reached, the number of cell lines readily available to scientists must increase.
The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act would expand research on embryonic stem cells by increasing the number of lines stem cells that would be eligible for federally funded research.
I support stem cell research, including embryonic stem cell research.
You cannot be against embryonic stem cell research and be intellectually and therefore morally consistent, if you're not also against in vitro fertilization.
There are no bona fide treatments available for embryonic stem cells. There is nothing in the laboratory, and there is certainly nothing in the clinics available to patients.
In fact, many nations currently refuse to support embryonic stem cell research of any kind.
The federal and state governments should ban the use of taxpayer funds to support cloning and embryonic stem cell research.
I wholeheartedly support umbilical stem cell research, but also support embryonic stem cell research.
Scientists have stated that embryonic stem cells provide the best opportunity for devising unique treatments of these serious diseases since, unlike adult stem cells, they may be induced to develop into any type of cell.
Today, it is research with human embryonic stem cells and attempts to prepare cloned stem cells for research and medical therapies that are being disavowed as being ethically unacceptable.
Laura Bush went on national television during the week of my father's funeral and spoke out against embryonic stem cell research, pointing out that where Alzheimer's is concerned, we don't have proof that stem-cell treatment would be effective.
I'm very grateful that President Obama has lifted the restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.
Sadly, embryonic stem cell research is completely legal in this country and has been going on at universities and research facilities for years.
The U.S. has the finest research scientists in the world, but we are falling far behind other countries, like South Korea and Singapore, that are moving forward with embryonic stem cell research.
There is an abundance of misinformation, exaggeration, and blatant lies being spread by interest groups regarding the prospects for embryonic stem cell research.
The refusal to acknowledge the scientific value of embryonic stem cell research is one more tragic misstep.
Embryonic stem cell research will prolong life, improve life and give hope for life to millions of people.
