ABC News Beliefnet Poll, 2001 - Analysis

STEMCELL

Sometimes fertility clinics produce extra fertilized eggs, also called embryos, that are not implanted in a woman's womb. These extra embryos either are discarded, or couples can donate them for use in medical research called stem-cell research. Some people (support stem-cell research, saying it's an important way to find treatments for many diseases). Other people (oppose stem-cell research, saying it's wrong to use any human embryos for research purposes). What about you - do you support or oppose stem-cell research?
