One of the biggest frustrations of mine is how the general public fails to understand the difference between adult stem cells which have cured as many as 85 diseases in laboratory trials, and do not destroy an unborn baby, and the use of embryonic stem cells which causes the death of an unborn child, and have cured absolutely no diseases to date. Adult stem cells, which may be obtained from such innocuous sources as umbilical cord blood, are approved by the Catholic Church. Embryonic stem cells are not.
My friend Monica Rafie of Be Not Afraid. net has started a group blog to raise awareness of these important differences. It's called Adult Stem Cell Awareness.
