We don't have to destroy embryos to get stem cells. According to one researcher:
"The stem cells we generated were completely normal and differentiated into all the cell types of the body, including insulin-producing cells, blood cells and even beating heart cells."
You know the saying about a window opening when a door closes? I've seen it happen over and over again in public policy, and here's a GREAT example. Not to mention that I hope these are more successful than the embryo-destroying stem cells - those grow tumors of teeth and hair (eeeeewwww....). Adult stem cells are the ones that have been used successfully, and many times now! Plus, we keep finding them all over the body in places we hadn't thought to look before...
