STEM CELL DEBATE
(2007-04-19)
(wgvu) - A group of Democratic state lawmakers is
reviving efforts to try and remove barriers on embryonic stem cell
research in Michigan.
The long-running debate over the research at the state and
federal levels has exposed a philosophical rift.
Some would rather focus on stem cell research that doesn't
involve embryos, which they say raises ethical concerns.
But the group announcing the reintroduction of legislation
insists that embryonic research holds the most promise for medical
research related to diabetes, spinal injuries and a host of other
maladies.
Michigan has some of the most restrictive rules in the nation
for embryonic stem cell research.
