The Righteousness of Science

The Nashville Scene ran a review of RIGHT TO RECOVER on October 18, 2007.

A local writer makes the case for stem cell research
by Maria Browning

Embryonic stem cell research, which uses material from fertilized human eggs to explore possible treatments for a wide range of medical conditions, has become an issue the religious right counts on to mobilize voters.
