Embryonic Stem Cell Research Unethical Waste of Taxpayer Money Says Americans United for Life President
Date:12/3/2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of Americans United for Life released the following statement in response to news that leaders in Congress plan to make funding embryo destructive stem cell research a priority.

"Given the current state of the economy, to squander taxpayer resources on research that destroys human embryos, that shows no actual therapeutic results, and that in fact runs counter to the latest stem cell discoveries (induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs) is nothing more than ideologically-driven government at its very worst.

"It is mystifying why Speaker Pelosi and other leaders in Congress continue to push for funding to destroy human embryos in the face of continued success with stem cells from bone marrow, umbilical cords, and other non-embryonic sources."
