Stem cells from regular skin

In another breakthrough, scientists have found a way to make cells from ordinary skin revert back to stem cells. No embryos were harmed in the making of this experiment. I like this comment:

“Stem cell research that requires destroying embryos is going the way of the Model T,” Richard M. Doerflinger of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said. “No administration that values science and medical progress over politics will want to divert funds now toward that increasingly obsolete and needlessly divisive approach.”

Nevertheless, the advocates of fetus harvesting to make medicine for adults keep demanding that right.

"People do think about the morality of abortion. Just because they reach a different conclusion ..."

Bloody Ireland
"And of course the left wing side rejoices at this, which just shows we need ..."

Bloody Ireland
"No one makes that case when the Catholic Church is on the sides you agree ..."

Bloody Ireland
"Or how about the fact that people think there is no need to think about ..."
