How many of you know that JDRF is involved in Embronic Stem Cell Research? Do you know that Human lives are being destroyed to research a cure for diabetes? There is a post here about a recent interview with their president in which he does not discuss this issue at all. In replies to my comments in that post, I was critiqued for bringing up the issue of Embronic Stem Cell Research (I think that there are those that would like it to be a dirty little secret - If we dont know its happening, its OK?) So that is why I am moving the discussion here. No comments are disallowed here - I would like to hear all sides and thoughts.. Does it bother you that others are working on our behalf and destroying human life to find a cure. Would you prefer that this research be done with Adult stem cells that do not destrpoy human life? Would you take a cure that cost another human their life? Personally I will not. I stopped donating to the JDRF when they announced this policy change last year.
I still don't understand where and in what manner the embryos are being destroyed to gather stem cells? Are you talking about fertility clinics? Can you be more explicit about what this whole thread is all about?
What are embryonic stem cells?
A. What stages of early embryonic development are important for generating embryonic stem cells?
Embryonic stem cells, as their name suggests, are derived from embryos. Most embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos that develop from eggs that have been fertilized in vitro—in an in vitro fertilization clinic—and then donated for research purposes with informed consent of the donors. They are not derived from eggs fertilized in a woman's body.
