Catholic Bishops Condemn Embryonic Stem Cell Research
The AP reports: "America's Roman Catholic bishops say in a new document that embryonic stem cell research carries grave moral risks. The bishops approved the statement overwhelmingly at their national meeting Friday in Orlando. The bishops said no greater good can come from using then discarding the embryos, which they consider innocent human life."

Bishops shouldn't be legislating God's law from the pew.

Can't they get the same stem cells from amnionic fluid and umbilical cords? Does anyone know why they do not use those?

Jill I think many people who are religious don't particularly agree with invitro, so probably not. Also many women either freeze the embies for later use, OR they will donate them to other women who don't have their own eggs, especially the men and women who are religious. There are actually far less unused embryos then you think there would be.

But the bishops think war carries no grave moral risk, so carry on with that.

I have always wondered what happens to the embryos that women set aside for invitro, when the early attempts work. Do they just toss them? Would any conservatives be ok with these embryos being used? (So they wouldn't be created for stem cell research, but wouldn't be wasted either).

This is a tough issue for me because I am Catholic, but I am also diabetic and could benefit from the cure that could be developed from the stem cells.
