Re: President Reaganís health said to have deteriorated
I'm a proponent of stem cell research, but saying the "extra's" are just thrown out isn't really correct.
There are currently about a half million frozen embryos in the US alone. It's up to the "parents" to decide what to do with them, and many can't make that decision. Especially after having a child from the process that created those extra's. Some are being thrown out, some given to science for research, some are being "adopted" to other infertile women. But a lot just stay frozen.
So even if stem cell research was blessed by everyone in Washington, you'd still have to have the parents permission to use the embryos.
Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
