Embryonic Stem Cell Research a 'Dangerous Journey': Detroit's Cardinal Maida Comments on Funding Question

    DETROIT, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit's archbishop, Cardinal Adam
 Maida, comments on the embryonic stem cell research question:
 
     "As a religious leader, I believe that God is the author and architect of
 human life and no one else.  As an American, I trust that my 'inalienable,' or
 inherent, rights to 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,' and those of
 our future generations, should never be co-opted by government-funded
 scientists in the name of research.
     "Indeed, society must be very careful when it puts its hand on the switch
 of life.  By design or default, we could easily begin a dangerous journey down
 the 'slippery slope.'  Embryonic stem cell research points down that path.
 And, by appropriating taxpayers' money for such experiments with human life,
 our elected officials would make all of us unwitting partners along the way."
