John Kerry on Stem Cell Research

Pamela Leavey writes on John Kerry and Stem Cell Research. She quotes John Kerry:
For everyone, the issue of stem-cell research is deeply personal and fundamentally moral. We each dread getting a call from a doctor with the results of a diagnosis that makes our heart sink, or the day we say goodbye to a loved one.

I'll never forget a woman I met last fall at a town hall meeting on stem-cell research. She stood up, her frail body shaking, and pleaded for her government to embrace stem-cell research. It was the moral clarity of her message that will stay with me forever.

“It's too late for me,” she said, “but we need to do this for those who still have hope.”
