That time proved to be a defining point for me. Would I succumb to the temptation of being delivered from a horrible disease that was destroying me if it required killing another human being? Granted, it would have been tempting if a restorative cure had been developed for MS using embryonic sources. Sadly I would have to turn away from it. I could not accept it. Some principles rise above self-interests.
It's doubtful that mainstream media like the New York Times and CNN, who were so enthusiastic to tout the promises of embryonic stem cell research 15 years ago, will not go back now to report its failure.
