Default Christians against embryonic stem cell research?



Do you think that invitro fertilization should be made illegal?
If not, what should be done with the left over embryos? As long as fertility clinics are doing IVF, there will be extra embryos, which, if can't be used for research, will eventually be destroyed in any case. So if you really are against embryonic stem cell study, you should really be lobbying to shut down fertility clinics. Right?

There is no logic to it except that it goes against their religion.
Once they get someone in their life who gets very sick, they start to change their mind, usually.

Seriously though, the US is supposed to be excelling in technology but this is really hindering so much. The Genome Project was an amazing discovery that enabled so much, but why can't stem cells be used? they'll be thrown out if not used , whats the point of wasting them.
Sorry, I didn't answer your question, I'm just frustrated.

Embryonic stem cell research doesn't work, it's to unpredictable.

I agree with your central point, but I don't think it goes far enough.

I find the religiously-based opposition to stem-cell research to be morally bankrupt. I have a family history of cancer on both sides of my family, and my grandmother has early-onset Alzheimer's Disease. That puts me at increased risk for both.

My question is: who do these people think they are to stand in the way of something that might save my life one day? Many of them will end up with the same diseases, and if they want to do themselves in with horrible, painful diseases, that's fine. But they have no right to take me with them.

Good point!

But you can bet that you will have some ignorant nut job tell you that it's against Gods law, like they actually know that for a fact? Did God say so?
Be assured of a barrage of abuse is all I can say.

LOL @ Christianman...did you really cite Dr. Oz? The guy who tries to sell women books on how to look 19 at the age of 50?

Christ on a cracker, did I laugh...

Okay, well if being Dr. -fill in the blank- is all it takes for you to take someone's complete word on a subject regardless of sources cited to back it up, then from now on, I am Dr. Srsly, and no one will give me a thumbs down ever again, as I am clearly all-knowing!

Did someone just tell you to watch Oprah for science info? Holy hell!

If you want to know someone I trust in regards to science, you'd better turn off the tv and try reading. It fundamental! Your premise of "unpredictability" is ridiculous, to put it nicely. Your hopeless. And not terribly knowledgeable in science. If the good doctor you cite thinks embryonic stem cell research should be abandoned because it is "unpredictable", then yes, clearly I know more about science than him. As does my dog. And both my shoes.

Srsly...I know, seriously! (((Srsly)))
