Submission from Dr Stephen Brennan, Master
of the Guild of Catholic Doctors
1. We have made our position on Human Embryo
Research over the years very plain. We are opposed to it, on the
grounds that Human Life is sacred, and should not be used in this
2. Adult Stem Cell Research is the way forward,
and is producing results. Her Majesty's Government should put
its resources into this form of Ethical Research.
3. We should not be led further astray by
blinkered scientists who have little respect for the sanctity
of Human Life. They dazzle us with promises of cures for appalling
diseases, but have little respect for any ethical standards in
achieving their ends.
4. The Guild totally opposes the mixture
of Human Embryonic cells with animal cells
