A New Source of Stem Cells

Here’s an account of the discovery of stem cells obtained from amniotic fluid that may well have most or all of the useful properties of embryionic stem cells for regenerative medicine. They actually seem to have one or two more: There’s the prospect of parents freezing these cells for their child’s future use, probably solving the rejection problem that’s plagued stem cell research so far. THE BIG POINT is that’s it’s increasingly clear that one scientific breakthrough or another will soon bring the alleged moral dilemma of destroying embryos to save lives to an end before it really even gets here.

Peter - The link here goes to the AALE story!

Here’s where I read about this.

Of course, I thought "Oh, how lovely. One nasty issue settled." but then saw this from the Genetics Policy Institute, GPI. Which reminded me, as I remind you, that the problem is in the politics of the thing more than it is in science. There, in science, I believe your BIG POINT is true.

Very good news, indeed. The Vatican hailed it. I of course can’t link to it.

I wonder how I did that.
