The Perry Survey Comments

6. Any other comments?

Note: I corrected spelling and punctuation simply to make the comments clearer, but I have not corrected the responders’ grammar or changed any statements made even though some comments given by participants are not supported by scientific facts:


  • A cell without any potential of being a baby, yet the owner is willing to donate it in order to provide goodness to the already living but perhaps injured is accepted. But, the formation of cell already being a baby, and already living, although willingly donated by the owner, to be killed for the same intention, is not accepted. The God has made all life sacred.

  • Adult stem cell research could be funded through the government. It appears to be a more likely candidate for cures in the short term.

  • All worldly (or outer) objects are good or bad, dualistic in their nature. The good of blastocyst stem cell research can bring can out weigh the bad that can also be done with it. That would be my prayer.

  • Baby Killers!

  • Every day humanity wages war upon itself. I find it ludicrous for a government to ban stem cell research on the grounds of morality and yet uphold the death penalty or wage a war.

  • Everything is connected. Of course killing a blastocyst kills the embryo it will become, and the baby the embryo will become. The implication is that human (baby) life is the most important value and there are many values with simultaneous importance.

These are some very eye-opening comments! Notice that more than half the responders to my survey base their opinion about blastocyst stem cell research on what they’ve heard in the media. Sixty-seven percent of the responders to my survey claim to be Christians and yet the results show 77.6% of them disagree with the president’s belief that an embryo is destroyed through blastocyst research. Ninety-two percent of those who took my survey believe blastocystic stem cell research may provide cures for disease and 75% say the government should step up to the plate and start funding the research.

If you would like to give your personal opinion about stem cell research, go to www.right2recover.com and participate in the survey I have set up online. Your comments will remain anonymous and I reserve the right to include the answers in any future book I write.
