The British Embryonic Stem Cell Debate


The debate is not like our debate though. The British are not concerned about using embryonic stem cells (ESC) for research; they have been doing that since 2002. The debate for them is now about funding, why? They are worried that America will surpass their advances in the field of stem cell research since President Obama lifted the ban on federal funding of ESCR. The Telegraph, a British news agency, released a story yesterday cataloging all of the advances they have made in stem cell research. In the article, it is interesting to note that many of their best advances came not from using ESC, but from using iPS (adult stem cells) and bone marrow stem cells. I would encourage you to read the entire story. You can read it here.
What'd you think?
