FRC: NIH Stem Cell Guidelines Reflect Poor Science, Ignore Real Hope for Patients

Instead, the guidelines implement a plan that will force taxpayers to foot the bill for research that involves human embryo destruction.

"The NIH guidelines will create an incentive to cannibalize the so-called 'leftover embryos,' though they will not fund research on stem cells derived from cloning, parthenogenesis and human-animal hybrids. However, NIH clearly believes the President's executive order allows them to fund such unethical research at any point in the future. The guidelines purport to have tight informed consent requirements, but they don't even require IVF doctors and the stem cell researchers to work separately, thereby opening a gaping loophole for the researchers to increase embryo production for their research.

"Instead of funding more embryo destructive research, the government should fund research using adult stem cells that are on the cutting edge of treating patients for diabetes, spinal cord injury, heart disease, and various cancers. Unfortunately, this draft guidance only
