Noted pro-life advocate Judie Brown, president of the American Life League (ALL), says the revelation that a well-known South Korean scientist faked his research on the cloning of embryonic stem cells is just further proof that the use of these ethically controversial stem cells is nothing more than the unnecessary destruction of innocent human life.
South Korea’s leading university says gene research superstar Hwang Woo-Suk did not produce any stem cells individually tailored to patients as he had claimed. ALL’s Judie Brown says the vast majority of ethical scientists feel Hwang deceived the public. “We actually saw people depart from his team during the course of his research,” she says, “and the bottom line is that human embryonic stem cell research has never offered any kind of therapeutic plus to anybody. There is no credibility whatsoever in human embryonic stem cell research, and there never has been.”
Hwang rose from being an obscure veterinarian to international research community fame in 2004 when he claimed to be the first investigator to clone a human embryo. But what Hwang has just proven, Brown contends, is that the only thing embryonic stem cell research proponents have, figuratively speaking, is “a deck of cards that has been built up into some kind of a pyramid that’s going to descend upon itself and be destroyed.”
