Select Committee on Science and Technology Written Evidence

Memorandum 11

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 way.

  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
