  • Two-thirds of the respondents agreed that, "If most scientists believe that stem cell research will greatly increase our ability to prevent or treat serious diseases we should trust them and let them do it."
  • Twenty percent think embryonic stem cell research "comes too close to allowing scientists to play God."

  • Slightly more than half of the respondents said they feel that lack of federal funding for stem cell research would leave the United States far behind other nations in developing new drugs and preventing diseases.
  • Twenty-eight percent of those polled agreed with the following statement: "I don'
