Stem Cells Used to Grow Heart Valve

Exciting news from the Brits. A team of researchers in London have been able to use stem cells to create a new heart valve. This is exciting because, if these researchers are correct, doctors will be able to create organs that will not be rejected by the patient's system.

Guess what word cannot be found anywhere in the article. The word you're looking for is "embryonic". That's right folks - these stem cells were harvested, not from an embryo, but from the bone marrow of an adult.

Liberals have been unavailable for comment because no unborn babies were killed, which means it's not real science.
