This week, with a publication in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, a group of researchers from the University of Toronto and The Ottawa Hospital suggest that this scenario may not be too far away.

At one point we learned there was a separation between church and state in US history, but if you told an immigrant that they probably wouldn't believe you. Stem cells have been proven to reverse many chronic and acute diseases. However the religious perspective says that it is immoral and wrong, and unfortunately that same religious perspective is politicized. The bottom line is that our morals and ethics need to catch up to the science of stem cells, because the potential will never be realized as long as these religious beliefs are politicized. 03-23-2016 12:12pm
