Residents in New York are overtaxed. If this research is viable, private sources will fund it.

Adult stem cells can provide the benefits of stem cell research without entering the moral and ethical ground of embryonic stem cells. … Stem cells from the placenta and umbilical cord have much to offer too.
-Michael Patella, OSB, Saint John’s University

It is almost criminal that both federal and state governments are not maximizing investment into this promising technology while millions of people suffer from potentially curable ailments. … You have to wonder what our government’s long-range plans to support the economy are.
-Joseph Lancaster, president, Navalis Co. Inc.

I fully support all stem cell research-to not only fight neurological disorders but, who knows, maybe one day find a cure for cancer.
-Karen Baglin, Harris Interactive
