A Change in Spain

Spain is set to become the first Catholic country in Europe to support human embryonic stem cell research. This is significant because Europe is currently very divided on the issue. The predominantly Catholic countries (and Germany) have thus far opposed stem cell research that involves human embryo destruction, while the less-Catholic countries, including England, Holland and Sweden, have supported it. Spain’s decision could signal a shift in the European balance--not a good sign for those who favor the U.S. prohibition on funding stem cell research, as pressure mounts for us to relax our ethics-based position.
