Question for those against embryonic stem cell research.

If you or someone you loved were diagnosed with a serious or fatal medical condition and there was a cure available as a direct result of embryonic stem cell research, would you take the cure?

  • Not if it meant an innocent,unborn human being had to die for it. God tells us in His Word He knew us before He created us. That means we were a person before we were even conceieved. We have a soul from the moment of conception, regardless of how that is acheived. So, even if to some it's just a "blurb", or whatever else they use to justify it, it's still a living breathing human being in reality,and it's murder. Not to mention, that embryonic stem cells show no promise of healing anything. It's the adult ones that are showing all the promise in science.

  • I've seen you mention that you have fibromyalgia (sp?).  You seriously wouldn't take a cure for it if it came from ESC?

  • My son has autism and I'm told that embryonic stem cell research could possibly cure it. Sorry, no. Adult stem cells are better.
