I think research that shows reasonable promise to cure or manage deadly diseases and conditions should be funded.
That's providing we aren't sacrificing one human life for another.
That would, in my view, be unethical and immoral for obvious reasons.
I'm reminded of the novel and movie "Coma" by Robin Cook.

They now have an alternative to fetal tissue being used.
So, like you said, that's good.

Stem cells are not sentient or aware. They feel no pain, have no brain or heart. Yes, they have the potential to become fetuses that are aware but, they are not. If the alternative way works well. That would be awesome.
