Adult Stem Cell Awareness

New biotech to operate according to Catholic ethics

We already have several great biotechs that operate this way – fully in line with and inspired by Catholic ethics – including the John Paul II Stem Cell Research Institute, founded by Dr. Alan Moy. And more and more Catholic science professionals are taking initiatives to ensure that all of us can enjoy the progress of science without the problems of science. Of particular focus is the potential problem of using therapies derived from embryonic stem cells, or more commonly, the already existent problem of using vaccines that are generated from the tissue of aborted babies. While our culpability in the use of these products has been reduced to “very remote” cooperation, why not find another way to create vaccines and therapies – reducing the need for any degree of cooperation in inherently evil acts?

Dr. Theresa Deisher has announced the formation of AVM Biotechnology, LLC. Deisher has consistently spoken out against the use of fetal tissue (from aborted babies) to create vaccines. Her org is working to develop ethically derived vaccines and bring them into the marketplace. In addition, AVM will work in the area of regenerative medicine – which uses autologous tissues and adult stem cells.
