Ohio Diocese Discourages Catholic Schools from Ice Bucket Challenge

Sad that so many are still committed to ESC when there have been so many breakthroughs with adult stem cells.

The ice water or payment of a fine, no opt-out, not fair. This is one very large scam. If the money gets to ESCR which I cannot believe. All embryonic stem cells must be raised four stage to become adult stem cells, so it is disingenius to murder a sovereign person for his stem cells when one can get adult stem cells from adults. Stem cells from umbilical cord blood is becoming very popular and effective. This "ice bucket brigade" is the dying gasp of embryonic stem cells research. Gen-Tech, the original researcher in embryonic stemm cells abandoned the cause several years ago. This is why I believe this is a scam.
