Given time and more resources, scientists believe stem cells will eventually yield knowledge that could help victims of diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, spinal cord injuries, and heart disease, for example.

Opponents have dwelled on the fact that embryonic stem cells come from donated embryos produced by ......
