“We have heard a great deal about stem cells lately.
"There are two basic types: stem cells gathered by killing human embryos, and stem cells from adults or from the placenta or umbilical cord of newborn babies.
"We need to promote the use of umbilical cord & placental blood stem cells, and adult stem cells, because these are morally and ethically acceptable — and because they work!
"The people of America need to be made aware that not one person has to date been 'cured' using stem cells from human embryos.
"On the other hand, adult or placental stem cells have been used successfully in thousands of medical procedures so far."
