Stem Cell Polling From CAMR

The latest poll from the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research shows strong support for embryonic stem cell research and therapeutic cloning - especially once the goals, such as curing common age-related conditions, are explained. "59% strongly or somewhat favored [this] research, and only 33% opposed or strongly opposed it. But after a brief description of the research was read, the percentage in favor increased to 68% compared to only 28% opposed. A question regarding the use of [therapeutic cloning] found that 60% strongly or somewhat favored the research, and only 35% somewhat or strongly opposed it. However, after a more detailed description [was read], the more respondents favored the research, 72% compared with only 23% opposed."
