I remember when the issue of stem cell research  first came to public attention around 1998. I was living in Scotland then and followed debates on the issue. There are indeed just causes for people to be concerned about stem cell usage. Some of them are of an ethical and moral nature.  While I myself see  the value of the use of stem cells in treating diseases such as Parkinson’s, I share many of the concerns surrounding their usage and acquisition.

Late in 2006, I met Chief Prince  Michael and we had a vigorous discussion about stem cell usage. Well, at least, I did. He listened to me quite calmly then said that stem cells could be used to treat fourth degree burns. I could see that.

Until then.
