The American Medical Students Association Statement on Embryonic Stem Cell Research

AMSA's Interim Policy Proposal on Stem Cell Research is out:
The American Medical Student Association
BELIEVES that all types of stem cell research, including embryonic stem cell research, umbilical cord blood stem cell research, and adult stem cell research, should be explored to the fullest potential, while abiding by appropriate ethical guidelines, for the purposes of advancing treatment and preventing disease.

BELIEVES that nuclear transplantation, used for the purpose of creating embryonic stem cells that are an immunologic match for a given patient, and for the purpose of studying genetic defects and congenital anomalies, is an acceptable form of research.
