CHRISTOPHER REEVE IN READER'S DIGEST INTERVIEW: "EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS NOT ABLE TO DO MUCH ABOUT CHRONIC INJURIES"
Reader's Digest: Christopher Reeve: A hero onscreen and off
RD: What's your position on embryonic stem cell research?
Reeve: I advocate it because I think scientists should be free to pursue every possible avenue. It appears though, at the moment, that embryonic stem cells are effective in treating acute injuries and are not able to do much about chronic injuries.
John Edwards on Stem Cell Research @ Newton High School, Newton, Iowa:
'We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases... When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.'
