Friends, I need some help, and some support and prayers won’t hurt either on this one…
The article touts a possible cure to deafness via embryonic stem cells. Can some folks with expertise in the stem cell debate take a look at this article and comment? The article doesn’t address adult stem cells and I would like to know if there is any reason adult cells couldn’t be used similarly here - or if the promise of embryonic cells claimed here is not realistic.
I feel using embryonic stem cells is gravely wrong and even though I have a 7 year old daughter with inherited hearing loss, I must and will stay true to my moral principles. Rather than just debate the issue, I will now have to live it firsthand and my daughter will pay the consequences. Any information that makes the issue easier to explain and defend will certainly help. Thanks!
