Every year we do a post explaining our refusal as a company to support the Komen Race for the Cure. This year, the Archdiocese of St. Louis added another reason: The Komen Foundation supports embrionic stem cell research:
Komen endorses embryonic stem-cell research that requires the destruction of embryonic human life, stating that, “embryonic stem cells are currently considered to have the most potential for use in the regeneration of diseased or injured tissues” for cancer stem-cell research. The destruction of human life at any stage of development is never morally acceptable. Embryonic stem-cell research is also unnecessary since adult stem-cell research has a proven record of cures and treatments.
