Adult Stem Cells: Saving Lives Now
Adult stem cells from sources such as bone marrow, muscle, and umbilical cord blood are successfully improving health and saving lives of patients now, without destroying the stem cell donor. Over 50,000 patients are treated with adult stem cells every year. But embryonic stem cell research, which requires the destruction of a young human embryo, has not helped a single person.
The following powerpoint presentation is from a talk given by Dr. David Prentice at the 2010 National Right to Life Convention. The slides clarify the problems and misconceptions about embryonic stem cells and cloning, the new science of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) that behave like embryonic stem cells yet without the use of embryos, eggs, or cloning, and the successful and ethical science of adult stem cells, including examples of patients treated with adult stem cells.
