Re: [IP] Pam-More on stem cell research



Pam,
I read the site over again. Right on the JDRF sight it says "stem cells are
derived from FERTILIZED EGGS developed for in vitro fertilization that are
in excess of clinical need."
Please pass on correct information because not everyone will read this
information for themselves and instead will take someones word for it. It is
the right thing to make sure the information you send to a few thousand
people is stated the same as on  the site!
What right does JDRF have to state this should not be viewed as a right to
life issue? Do they know for sure there is no life in an embryo?
