Embryo debate 'dead'

A cardiovascular surgeon has said what pro-lifers have known for years - the embryo research debate is dead because embryonic stem cells are dangerous and will never have the potential of adult stem cells. The interesting thing is that Dr Mehmet Oz made his comments on the popular Oprah Winfrey show in front of one of the most vociferous proponents of destructive embryo research.

His comments echo those made by Dr James Sherley at the SPUC conference last year. Dr Sherley went on to criticise both U.S. presidential candidates for a 'vacation of reason' by their support for embryo research, as such research is clearly an attack on early human life and will never provide any much-promised miracle cures.
