Medics can now obtain stem cells from the bone marrow of each patient.<br />
This means that in the near future they will be able to grow a clone of any body part to an exact match, with no concerns about possible rejection, or whether a donor can be found.<br />
<br />
Researchers can also take stem cells from the placenta or umbilical cord without having to touch a fetus.<br />
<br />
If a pregnant woman is rich enough, she can have the placenta and cord put in cryogenic storage for future use of her child during its lifetime.<br />
<br />
All these mean the the right to life issue no longer applies to stem cell research.<br />

I would have no ob<x>jection if excess zygotes from a fertility program were permitted by the parents to be used for research. <br />
A zygote has no nervous system, hence no means of consciousness.
