The Stem-Cell Debate

Embryonic stem-cell research, which scientists believe could hold the key to curing many diseases, is strongly opposed by pro-life advocates. What do you think?

  • “As it clearly states in Leviticus, '...and the use of embryonic stem cells in biomedical research shall be forever prohibited. Thus sayeth the Lord.'”

    Diane Backman –
    Legal Secretary

  • “Spare me your rationalizations. All I know is, stem-cell research kills a quasi-living four-day-old blob.”

    Richard Heep –
    Systems Analyst

  • “You mean, you can actually experiment with stem cells from human embryos? Man, and all this time, I've just been throwing mine out.”

    Bill Teufel –

  • You try looking into the eyes of a human embryo and saying, 'We need you to die for science.' You can't do it, can you? What do you mean, which side am I arguing?”

  • “They take these stem cells from little babies. They use big, sharp knives. The babies scream, but they take their stems anyway. This makes Jesus cry.”

    Carl Knight –

  • “Only the scientists would go to hell, right? Then let them find a cure for cancer and we'll keep dutifully opposing their actions.”
