I am not asking whether or not it is moral and if it should be done. I am asking why the government has to pay for it, which means our tax dollars will pay for it. The drug companies that are able to take the progress science makes through stem cell research and cure diseases are the one who will make BILLIONS of dollars from these cures, not us. More money than I can even imagine. Why don't the drug companies continue to use stem cell research to find cures? Why does the government have to have control of everything?Answer Question

Same reason we have been paying for corporate welfare for years. Or to subsidize big oil. Or for unnecessary wars.

I am disgusted I have to pay for the destruction of human life in the name of research. So far the research with adult stem cells and stem cells in cord blood have given more positive results than what has been tested with embryonic stem cells. Most tests have lead to cancer as an end result. Seems they should go with what is promising instead of pouring money into something that has not been. I guess this is once again about ending the life of a human for someone else's benefit. So sad.
