Alternative to Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Wake and Harvard Universities have come out with a new study saying that it is possible that the amniotic fluid surrounding an unborn baby will have the so called "same results" as with the embryonic stem cells. Therefore, scientist would be doing practically the same research they wanted to do before, but without having to use embryonic cells which result in the murder of the unborn child. This is good news. Scientist (even among those who deny it's murder) now have no excuse for killing unborn children for "research purposes" (Seemingly very similar to what the Nazi's used to do). Also, I said "seemingly same" results because I would like to know if there has been any REAL findings that have helped the medical world because of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. I have not heard of anything, but I don't keep up with those things.

I would like to remind people that the Church teaches that Embryonic Stem Cell Research (ESCR) is morally and seriously wrong. It is wrong, NOT because of some agenda to make more rules, to suppress the medical world, or to make money, but because it is murder. Both the Bible (Jeremiah 1:5) and the Church (CCC #2270) clearly teach that a person is a person from natural conception until natural death. Pray for an end to the culture of death!
