Obama OK's Embryonic Stem Cell Research - Despite Alternative

US President Barack Obama will Monday wipe out another contentious aspect of his predecessor George W. Bush's legacy by removing curbs on federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research.

Obama to reverse Bush limits on stem- cell research
Stem cell go-ahead puts Obama at odds with pope...
Stem cell decision exposes religious divides...

So obviously it is an incomprehensible and utterly deplorable concept to harvest human babies for stems cells (unless you are a liberal). My question is, why is the green light being given by Obama do destroy these embryos when the technology is there, or nearly there to avoid using an embryo altogether? Why not use some more money we don't have, and spend it on developing that technology?

From Scotland's The Herald:

Researchers at Edinburgh University, in collaboration with a team of Canadian-based scientists, gave skin cells embryonic powers while avoiding pitfalls that would normally lead to cancer or genetic abnormalities in patients.

The research raises the practical prospect for the first time of developing wide-ranging "spare part" stem cell treatments without having to destroy human embryos.

Seems to me this is just another Obama leftist policy he is throwing out there, overwhelming congress with, so they don't have time to think or react properly. This man is hell bent on doing as much damage in as little time as possible.

PAPER: Obama's left leaning no tactical feint...
Overloading Congress?

There are 100's of scientific studies that have been done on AFA and our product StemEnhance. There are also 100's of scientific papers on Adult Stem Cell therapy. I have listed quite a few on my blog that you can read at http://www.phyl247.biz You can also find the book over at Amazon.com that Christian Drapeau wrote. It is called "The Stem Cell Theory of Renewal" Take a look if you would like to talk feel free to email or call me anytime 877-696-8581
