No morals, no success, no tax dollars

stem cell researchAn organization that aims to identify policies and practices that will protect life and serve both women's health and family well-being does not think unethical research operations should be receiving tax dollars in the rush to develop a cure for the novel coronavirus.

Dr. David Prentice of the Charlotte Lozier Institute says some research organizations clambering for federal money are going against ethics by wanting to conduct coronavirus research with aborted baby remains.

"They make a lot of wild claims that hundreds of thousands, potentially even millions, of people, might be successfully treated by these experiments, but they kind of left out a basic fact: There's no evidence that the experiments they propose to do will lead to a single treatment or cure for anything," the Institute spokesman comments.

Meanwhile, research with adult stem cells is seeing success, including an adult stem cell treatment for pneumonia, which is a development seen in more serious COVID-19 cases.

"There's another report about an adult stem cell type that can be used to not just grow lung tissue, as they want to do with this aborted baby tissue, but to actually… repair lung tissue that's been damaged," Dr. Prentice relays.

Use of aborted babies has never been successful in developing cures or treatment for anything, and Dr. Prentice maintains the research violates standards of ethics. He concludes the money would be better spent on research with adult stem cells, which is already proving successful.
