    Joni and the Cure

    Just wondering if Joni Tada E. would ever consider advocating and supporting a spinal cord network.


    How tough can it be?

    I believe she has a problem using certain types of cells for therapies to cure SCI.
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Her website makes it clear that she only supports adult stem cell research, not embryonic cell research. She links to several other conservative religious organizations that oppose embryonic stem cell research.

    Joni has certainly got the merchandising going in a big way. Not only a woman in touch with Christ but one with a firm touch on business!

    Exactly Carbar,



    Supporting Adult Stem Cells is better than the almost trickle pace there now in USA. I can't see why the church don't at least pick up the torch and run with it. Darkness still abounds in many hearts. The potential is great!

    The church (all denominations) SHOULD focus on the sick as they are called to do!



    Cheers,

    Why can't she just promote adult stem cells and leave embryonic stem cell research for others - she cares more for a egg than people suffering and dying negative ethic - and also forces here views on others - look what she is saying here - absurd;

    "If we violate a human embryo today, tomorrow we will become callous about the fetus, then the infant, and then people with physical defects...let's influence society with reasoned judgment, strength of character, and a commitment to improve our culture, not diminish it." — Joni Eareckson Tada
    She must be living in a Hollywood movie (where have she been in this world?) - It is the fetus, the infant and people with physical defects this science wants to help?
