Description

In what has quickly become as hotly contested an issue as abortion, stem cell research is an area where it never hurts to go over the facts. Dr. Chuck Murry from UW Medicine handed out the latex gloves and layed out the stem cell crash course.

      Great segment, Laura.  These serious medical segments done on location are some of the best that 10 covers.  This was very informing and a pleasure to watch.  While I know Tina posed a moral question about stem cell research a while back, the two of you should have a debate segment with various people around Microsoft on the subject, or go with a classic "Flame War" setup.  It's just a thought.

      Rodents aside, What are your thoughts on stem cell research anyway?

      Anybody is welcome to answer that...especially members of the 10 team.
