What they're against is embryonic stem cell research because it always destroys a fertilized embryo which is considered to be human life. In the treatment this girl received, her own post-embryonic stem cells were used; this is completely acceptable as there is no loss of life, but a life preserved. Not all stem cell research and treatment is opposed, just those that kill embryos.

Heh. We already allow faulty genetic lines to perpetuate, so I can't really see that as a valid argument. As for the rest, as long as they stick to repairing accidental damage or birth defects, that's fine. It doesn't mean that we're on the slippery slope to designer babies.

It's been done, but it tastes bland. A lot of the tasty stuff is in the animal fats and residual cooked blood, not the proteins & cell matrix.
