:twisted: But stem cell research is more of a way of cheating death because yes while we might take a vaccine to survive the flu each year it doesn't have the potential to completely reverse the effects of a disease.

So? Do you have a death wish?

I don't find anything wrong with it, and I'm personally opposed to abortion. For one thing, these cells that they are using are going to go to waste otherwise. Whether you find in vitro fertilization right or wrong, they are going to go to waste. So I don't see it as an abortion. And from what I've heard, they want to get it where they can just clone one cell and make infinte lines. I see no problem with that, because no abortion is occurring, and you are merely making an exact replica of a cell that otherwise would've been sitting in a freezer forever.
