“Yamanaka will be remembered in history as the man who put human embryonic stem cell research largely out of business, motivated by reflection on the fact that his own daughters were once human embryos,” Fr. Berg, professor of moral theology at St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers, N.Y. told CNA Oct. 8...“There is every potential for the morally licit use of the technique developed by Dr. Yamanaka--cell reprogramming. No part of the process need involve ethically tainted source cells,” said Fr. Berg.The CNA article included a statement from the Commission of the Bishops' Conferences of the European Community pointing out that “recently GeronCorp., the world’s leading embryo research company, announced it was closing down its stem cell programme.”
Good news indeed! Now we can work on all the other murderous activities targeting babies in the womb.
