Where do stem cells come from?

Stem cells

Stem cells are cells collected that can be used for growth of almost any type of cell. For example if someone needed a bone marrow transplant, they would do so plant implanting stem cells which would turn into bone marrow cells.

Treating Diseases

Today more than 80 different types of Diseases have been treated with stem cells. From leukemia all the way to Multiple Sclerosis. They work by replacing damaged tissues. They are even working on replacing neurons to prevent or treat Alzheimer's.

Collection of the cells

Cord cells are some of the easiest ways to collect the cells, but can only be collected from a pregnant woman. After her child's birth she is asked if she would consent to donating her cells from the umbilical cord to the stem cell bank.

Bone marrow cells are collected from donors who are identified as able to donate. Not everyone's stem cells can be used. Just like O positive blood is a universal giver its not a universal taker. They are placed under anesthesia and doctors insert needles to extract the cells from pelvic bones.

Blood cells

Some other way of obtaining cells is by donating blood. But certain requirements must be met.

Why do millions of Americans oppose this idea?


I was hired by a Christian pro-life group to explain what the up roar about saving peoples life from collecting a few cells. Stem Cells are being collected from Fetal and embryos. The reason why its so bad is because it kills the child. By taking away the stem cells your preventing the fetus to be able to grow and develop. So basically is like "an eye for an eye" and "a tooth for a tooth" as stated in Matthew 5:38. They feel that someone who has had a fairly long life or has had a very long life should be saved before giving the next president or the next robin Williams a chance at life. It is a fact that the fetus cannot be used without being killed

Who we are
