Embryonic Stem Cells

Great Breakthroughs in Adult Stem Cell Research

Chloe: “You saved my life”

At a National Press Club lunch in Washington D.C. yesterday  --  sponsored by the Bethesda Life Foundation which was founded by the president emeritus of the 16 million member Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee, Dr. Morris Chapman   --  Dr. Jeong-Chan Ra, a prominent scientist and president of RNL Bio, introduced his new book, The Grace of Stem Cells: A Story of Science and Faith.

This writer had the privilege of sitting next to a couple of Dr. Ra’s patients, two outstanding young people, a brother and sister, who Dr. Ra has helped with the use of adult stem cells.  Their parents, both physicians in Long Beach, CA, found Dr. Ra through a doctor friend of theirs.  The bright and articulate young woman is mentioned in Dr. Ra’s new book in Case Study #8, title “Chloe Can Hear Again.”  At age 17, she had total deafness in left ear and hearing loss in right ear.  After receiving conventional treatment (steroids), she received three intravenous injections of stem cells over 15 days and had hearing restored to 50% in her left ear and 90% in her right ear.  At yesterday’s lunch, she seemed to have her full hearing restored. 

Oprah and Michael Fox shocked by Dr. Oz's truth

Michael Fox sat as a guest on Oprah's show in stunned silence! Oprah was pretty shocked also. What caused their astonishment was some truth-telling by Oprah's other guest, a popular physician named Dr. Mehemet Oz. Indeed, Dr. Oz, a regular guest on Oprah's show, is so popular with Oprah that she has called him "America's Doctor." Dr. Oz is a cardiovascular surgeon at Columbia University.

Earlier this month, Dr. Oz, appeared on the Oprah Show and explained to Oprah and her other guest, Michael Fox -- the premier promoter of human embryonic stem cell research because of his Parkinson's disease -- that human embryonic stem cells are not the solution to the cure for Fox's Parkinson's disease or other diseases. Indeed, he warned them -- and a lot of Americans who are so enamored with this immoral research -- that these human embryonic stem cells multiply at such a rapid pace, they cannot be controlled.

Injecting such cells into mice have caused life-ending cancerous tumors. Dr. Oz warned Michael Fox that that would also happen if such human embryonic stem cells were injected into him.

Billions of dollars, much of it provided by taxpayers, have been wasted on this highly controversial research already. Indeed, the state legislature of California, with the signature of the governor, appropriated a whopping $3 billion of tax dollars for useless human embryonic stem cell research.

Obama's life-killing decision on stem cells not unifying

With the stroke of his pen this afternoon Barack Obama made his most devisive move since he became president as he signed an executive order allowing taxpayer funding for the immoral destruction of human embryonic stem cells. All during his 2-year presidential campaign, he promised that he would end the devisiveness in America. Yet, he is forcing American taxpayers in decision after decision since he became president in January to fund procedures which Americans believe are morally repulsive.

This afternoon, Obama issued an executive order, overturning President George W. Bush's policy of not funding human embryonic stem cell destruction research with taxpayers' dollars. Ironically, after spending billions of dollars -- including some $3 billion in California alone -- on this unethical research, there have been no successes in human embryonic stem cell research. Only adult stem cell research and other forms of non-embyronic stem cell research have yielded results in curing diseases.

The House Republican Whip, Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor said following Obama's pandering to the radical pro-abortion fringe groups supporting the Democrat Party: “The President’s action today is not about whether or not to permit stem cell research, or even embryonic stem cell research in America. We already do each of those things. Today’s action is about forcing taxpayers to fund ethically troublesome – and unproven – research that destroys life."
