Slide 58 of 63
Christian theology specifically addresses the issues surrounding embryonic stem cell research. Most notable is the Christian concept that we may not do evil so that good will result.1 So, even though people may be cured through embryonic cell therapies, the destruction of human life (i.e., evil) prevents is use.
