A Virgina woman must travel to South Korea to receive a wonderfully promising new treatment that might enable her to walk again. The treatment uses blood cells from newborn's umbilical cords. Neat.
But why must she go to Korea? Because so many of American medical institutions continue to emphasize non-productive experimentation which exploits and destroys human embryos. In many cases, this"stuck on stupid" attitude is to the complete exclusion of research using "adult" stem cells -- even though that's been the proven path of progress.
Michelle, our prayers ascend for your full recovery.
