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."
