    Baby Owen who is featured in the TV spot was also the subject of a 6 page Stem Cell Article in the March issue of Men's Health.
    Owen is paralyzed from SMA, spinal muscular atrophy.

    i think it needs to explain the difference between esc and asc. then go on to explain that esc can be obtained without destroying the embryo.

    Some lawmakers support federal funding of research on embryos
    By Pete Williams

    Justice correspondent

    NBC News
    May 19, 2005WASHINGTON - The same Republican-controlled Congress that two months ago passed an emergency pro-life law for the parents of Terri Schiavo is now on the verge of voting to allow federal funding of research on stem cells derived from human embryos, something most on the anti-abortion side oppose.

    And this time, the drive is coming from moderate Republicans who say frozen embryos now held at fertility clinics would otherwise be discarded.

    "At some point the decision is made to dispose of the embryos," says Rep. Michael Castle, R-Del. "They're not going to be used in the process anymore, and in that case it either becomes hospital waste or it's going to be used for research if our bill passes."

    Like-minded Republicans are behind new TV ads, such as one featuring a parent saying, "Owen is my 2-and-a-half year-old son. He has a genetic disease called SMA. Stem cells really do offer the best promise.".....

    "It would be a lot better to utilize them for the benefit of mankind - to alleviate pain, suffering and disease," says Hatch. "And I think anybody who really looks at it has got to say, 'you know, that's pro-life too."
