  •  Right, so that's why sperm won't work (6+ / 0-)

    as a source of stem cells.  Stem cells need a full set of chromosome, and gametes (eggs and sperm) are only halvsies.

    •  Oh the time that's been wasted (4+ / 0-)

      because the wingnuts rather throw excess fertilized egg cells in the trash at IVF clinics, than use them for life saving stem cell research.

      While we are detouring from the most versatile stem cells around, 4,000 people die EVERY DAY that might have been saved if ESCR had been fully funded in the past 7 years.

      It's shameful.

      Of course scientists don't mind tinkering with other cells, but us patient families are still waiting for useable cures.

      Immigrants don't come from an American cultural background -- which means they have attention spans longer than the average hyperactive two-year old.
