Successful Stem Cell Research

When I say "Successful Stem Cell Research" I mean Adult Stem Cell research that is, because they are the only ones enjoying any kind of success.
(CNSNews.com) - Doctors and patients who have been involved in medical treatments derived from "adult" stem cells say they back federal legislation to promote such research -- because "this stuff works."

Speaking at the news conference, David Prentice, senior fellow for life sciences with the Center for Human Life and Bioethics, noted the ubiquity of adult stem cells.

"Over the last few years, we've realized that virtually every tissue of the adult body has adult stem cells," he said.

Adult stem cells can be collected from bone marrow, amniotic fluid, the placenta, testicular tissue, cord blood and nasal tissue, he said, adding that the cells "are very flexible" when used to treat a number of diseases or injuries.

"After a heart attack, some of the heart tissue is damaged or dead," Prentice stated. "We can now inject these adult-type stem cells into the damaged part of the heart and stimulate repair of that tissue."

Why is it that the Left loves to bash the Bush Administration and all Rethugs for not saving Superman and letting Micheal J. Fox shake himself to death? Why is that? Why are they are putting so much faith, time, energy and money into Embryonic Stem Cell Research, that has shown no promising studies, or trials as of yet, and Adult Stem Cells have had many successes? Why must a life be destroyed for nothing, when a person can be saved by using stem cells from their own body now?

Why do they insist in murdering life, when they can easily save lives with Adult Stems Cells?
