See if your Senator voted to destroy human life.

Bottom line adult stem cells do not destroy human life AND are much more effective in treating diesaes as the cells can be harvested from the patient or close relative that is a DNA match.

But I guess its easier to vote along your party lines to actually look at the FACTS.

FOR FACTS on stem cells and ethical considerations:

Dr. Georgia Purdom earned her doctorate in molecular genetics from Ohio State University. She spent six years as a professor of biology at Mt. Vernon Nazarene University. Dr. Purdom is also a member of the American Society for Microbiology and American Society for Cell Biology.
