Can someone give me a rational explanation for why it is better to dispose of these embryos than use them to save lives?
Seriously, the embryos will be destroyed. How is that better than fighting a whole host of devastating diseases?

But it will be DESTROYED if it's not used for research. Either way it is never going to be a baby. Stem cells from your nose cannot be used the same way as embryonic stem cells. If they could no one would bother trying to get the government to research the use of embryonic stem cells.

The embryos used for stem cell research could be left over from in vitro. Abortion doesn't have to have ANYTHING to do with it.
Adult stem cells do NOT work the same way as the ones from embryos. Embryonic stem cells haven't been programed to be a specific cell like adult ones have. Therefor they can be used MUCH more effectively.

Sorry, but the "Headquarters for the Conservative Underground" really isn't a reliable source. Do you a medical journal or something less biased?

For the record, I wouldn't believe a totally liberal source either.
