Gramps,

There is a lot of hoopla going on about stem cell research, embryos, cloning ect.  What is the church standing on these issues?

Answer

 

Nate,

The church has not taken a formal position on this matter.

“The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has not taken a position regarding the use of embryonic stem cells for research purposes. The absence of a position should not be interpreted as support for or opposition to any other statement made by Church members, whether they are for or against embryonic stem cell research.”

Embryonic Stem-cell Research
