Our Position: We support stem cell research to find lifesaving cures.
The Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures believes that any stem cell research, therapies or cures that are permitted by federal law should be allowed in Nebraska. The one caveat is that such activities are conducted ethically and safely, and do not involve human reproductive cloning.
Like the overwhelming majority of medical experts, medical organizations and patient advocacy groups, we support all types of stem cell research. We believe stem cell research should be pursued in an effort to find lifesaving cures, including research involving adult stem cells, Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) and stem cells from leftover fertility clinic blastocysts that would otherwise be discarded.
