Embryo vs. adult stem-cell research (letter)


by Brian Harris

News Weekly, October 22, 2005
Sir,

The human embryonic stem cells, in their natural place, can build a human heart in only 20 days, which is amazing.

However, morally speaking, to extract stem cells from the innocent embryonic human being, which subsequently dies, is gravely wrong and has no benefit whatsoever.

The adult stem cell, however, has had many successes in over 60 conditions and has proved beneficial to those with breast cancer, leukaemia and Krohn's disease and even spinal cord injury, to name but a few.

As distinct from the embryonic stem cell, there are no moral issues as the adult stem cell comes from the patient's own body and thus suffers no rejection problems.

Finally, it is important to lobby the Federal Government for the vital health dollar in favour of the highly successful adult stem cell research to date.

Brian Harris,
Hadfield, Vic.
