A heated controversy at The Nebraska University Board of regents meeting. Members of a Right to Life group gathered outside Varner Hall in protest of a policy that would allow further embryonic stem cell research. Maggie Kramer says embryonic stem cell research is the same as killing babies. She says it’s a strong statement to make.
“Yes that is, but that’s what they’re doing, they’re murdering babies.”
Dr. Lawrence Goldstein heads up the Stem Cell research department at the University of California at San Diego. He does not want research limited.
“We need as many skilled scientists, engineers, and physicians as possible working with the best possible and greatest variety os stem cells and approaches to solve problems human diseases as rapidly as possible.”
The debate brought a large crowd to Varner Hall on U-N-L’s east Campus.
