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 • Delivery Driver
"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?"
Irwin Santana • Customs Officer
"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 • Architect
"Only the scientists would go to hell, right? Then let them find a cure for cancer and we'll keep dutifully opposing their actions."
