Ban on stem cell research is wrong

Published 02/11/2011

I WONDER how many people realise stem cell research has been banned by the European Court of Human Rights? This is vital research, which could lead to the eradication of some of the most hideous diseases known to man, but now it has been banned.

First it was misshapen fruit, then our prisoners were given the vote and now a ban on stem cell research. What is going to be next from the European Union/European Court of Human Rights?

Our MPs had the opportunity to give the British people a referendum on getting out of the EU, but the majority voted against the motion. Shame on them.
