Fr. Pavone: MIT Professor's Statements Expose a Major Deception of Embryonic Stem Cell Advocates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                            

Contact:  Jerry Horn, 540-220-0095

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today commented on the remarks of Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor James Sherley, who wrote Thursday that embryonic stem cell research “is no path at all” to new medical therapies.  Professor Sherley says of the claim that embryonic stem cells produced from cloned embryos will somehow yield new cures for diseases, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”


“Professor Sherley’s statements highlight a major problem with the inhumane and morally reprehensible experiments that Amendment 2 wants the public to subsidize,” states Fr. Pavone.  “They won’t work.  Embryonic stem cells lead to tumors and cancers in human tissue; adult stem cells don’t.  Now some will object that I’m not a scientist.  But that’s the point.  It doesn’t require anything more than common sense to conclude that Amendment 2 should be opposed.”
