Embryonic stem cells found in amniotic fluid

Scientists have discovered the same kinds of stem cells that have until now only been found in embryos. Now they can possibly be extracted from amniotic fluid.

I'm glad this might lessen the demand for destroying human embryos, but I'm still waiting to see evidence that embryonic stem cells produces any medical benefit whatsoever--so far, nada. From what I can see, it's just a money grab. Federal dollars should not be spent in any way that devalues human life, nor should it be spent on projects that haven't yet yielded any real promise of remarkable breakthroughs. This is why we have a free market economy. If the concept of using these stem cells can produce a result that will make money for companies, then they should spend their own money to research it. Don't make me fund your baby-killing research with MY tax dollars.
