I’ve written quite a bit this week on the embryonic stem cell research issue (here and here). In response I received this email:

I can’t imagine Magda’s plight, although I can identify somewhat with the desperate desire for research to find a cure, having learned after my youngest grandson was born 9 months ago he has cystic fibrosis.

Nevertheless, several questions emerge from Magda’s letter. A few…

Does Magda stand a greater chance of embryonic stem cell research eliciting a cure for Parkinson’s, or adult stem cell research?

Do people like Magda who believe it is actually morally wrong to inhibit embryonic stem cell research have any moral boundaries regarding research for disease cures?

Is embryonic stem cell research morally equivalent to research using animals?
