CARDINAL BEVILACQUA CONCERNED FOR POSSIBLE LEGALIZATION OF EMBRYO STEM CELL RESEARCH
    PHILADELPHIA, 14 (NE) Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia sent letters to federal lawmakers and the National Institutes for Health asking them not to approve guidelines that would legalize embryo stem cell research.

    The month dedicated to the investigation of these norms will finish the 31st of January, deadline for the Congress to intervene before the guidelines become finalized. The draft guidelines published last December by the National Institutes for Health aim to a legalization of embryo stem cell research.

    "These guidelines disregard the sanctity of life by sanctioning the killing of unborn human embryos to obtain stem cells for research," wrote Cardinal Bevilacqua. "This assault on life must not happen. Scientific research should be guided by a fundamental moral norm: respect for the dignity of life from conception (fertilization) to natural death," he added.
