...Does it work?
Stem cells does work. My cousin's kid was blind and now he is not. He had to go to China to get the treatment.

Absolutely. It holds the possibility to cure illnesses for which he have no cure presently.

It's not illegal, so your question is moot. Now if you are asking if MY tax dollars should pay for embryonic stem cell research then the answer is NO. Research to date has been a bust and our tax dollars are better spent on other stem cell research that has resulted in cures.

Adult Stem cells work because you're taking the stem cells from developed bodies that have what you're looking for. Embryonic is pointless. And hey, they're both allowed but I don't want to be paying for either, so the gov. should not fund it, because that's just me who funds it.

Who files taxes? I do.

Depends on what you actually referring to, Adult stem cell research which has produced many cures, or embryonic stem cell research which has yet to provide any cures.

Of course it works. There are already many cures in existence today and even more promising cures on the horizon.

And every single one of them are from stem cells OTHER than embryonic stem cells. So why was it necessary for the pro-abortion folks to keep pushing... and pushing... and pushing... for embryonic stem cell research when the evidence has been clear for years that embryonic stem cells are a dead end? Was it because it helped perpetuate their own agendas about fetuses not being human beings?

Yes stem cell research is groundbreaking and helping save lives everyday. If anything more funding should be directed to stem cell research.

A huge majority of Americans have supported stem cell research for quite some time now (yet another case of Dubya acting against the will of the citizenry).

Uh, "Does it work?" That question makes no sense. There's excellent reason to think stem cell therapy would work fantastically well in vastly improving the quality of life for tens of millions.

The only way to find out,and make it work, is through research. That's what Bush clamped down on,and Obama has allowed.

If we'd been doing the research all this time, we'd be a lot closer to treating people -- people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, the paralyzed, and who knows what/who else.
