FRC Action senior vice president Connie Mackey was adamant about what conservatives should tell reporters when asked if they support stem cell research: “Say, yes!”

Of course conservatives must then explain to reporters the huge difference between adult stem research and embryonic stem cell research. Also on the “Truth Behind Capitol Hill’s Leading Ladies” panel at the Values Voters Summit, Rep. Michelle Bachman told the audience, “Science is our friend. We have not seen any breakthroughs with embryonic stem cell research. We have seen them with adult stem cell research.” You can read about the success of adult stem cells here [1], and Heritage outlines the ethical issues here [2].
