Absolutely!! Most embryo's used for this are lab created , some are from abortion's. There are so many people suffering from horrible diseasees that need a cure. Imagine being trapped in a useless body aware of everything around you and not being able to communicate. I took care of a gentleman with late stage parkinson's and it was heartbreaking! there are so many things stem cell research can help with.

Yes! My three sons, 24 mo grandson and I all have a rare disease called common variable immune deficiency (CVID) that may one day be cured using embryonic stem cell research. CVID is very rare, 1/50,000, and very expensive, one year my medical bills were over a million dollars and of course I maxed out on my insurance. I have to have IVs once every 3 weeks that cost $20,000 at a chemotherapy infusion center. If my doctors decide I have to have them at a hospital it's $40,000 every 3 weeks. I'm on 10 other meds all the time. I ave 3 hospitalizations a year. The 20 year survival rate is 60%. My grandbaby has only a little better than half a chance of surviving to be an adult. He is head to toe eczema and miserable all the time and screams in pain about a third of the day. He is also not growing.
