Alison Davis on stem cell research

Today's Independent carries a Independent Online Edition >Letter from Alison Davis in reply to a recent article by Stephen Hawking. Her letter concludes:
I am a full-time wheelchair user and have several severely disabling conditions. I would be happy to avail myself of ethical stem-cell treatment, and stem cells from these sources are most likely to provide the treatments and cures I look forward to.

I would never accept embryonic stem-cell treatments, because I would not want it on my conscience to be "helped" at the expense of killing some of the most vulnerable of my fellow human beings.
