Mitt Romney Backs Some Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Mitt Romney Backs Some Embryonic Stem Cell Research, Opposes Funding
Washington, DC ( -- In a new interview, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he opposes the specific creation and destruction of human life to advance science but he says he would support destroying human embryos from fertility clinics. Katie Couric conducted the interview and she asked Romney to describe the kind of embryonic stem cell research he might support. "Yes," Romney responded, "those embryos that are referred to commonly as surplus embryos from in-vitro fertilization." Romney said he would first like to see human embryos adopted by families before put up for their destruction. "But if a parent decides they would want to donate one of those embryos for purposes of research, in my view, that's acceptable," he said. "It should not be made against the law."
