Web site offers stem-cell information

Thursday, October 19, 2006

To the editor:

I would encourage your readers to go to the Family Research Council Web site (www.frc.org) and order the new, free six-minute DVD stem-cell primer "Beyond Hype to Real Hope." Also on the Web site, the Oct. 14 "Washington Watch Weekly" radio show was about the Missouri stem-cell issue, and there are many facts about stem cells by clicking on "Life and Bioethics."

Adult stem cells may show great promise, and the Web site makes the distinction between adult and embryonic stem cells.
