"Stem cells hold the promise to curing over 70 life-threatening diseases."


Obama believes women should be trusted to make their own choices when it comes to abortion.

"I think that most Americans recognize that this is a profoundly difficult issue for the women and
families who make these decisions. They don't make them casually. And I trust women to make
these decisions in conjunction with their doctors and their families and their clergy."

As President, Obama would support stem cell research, support medical advancement and innovation,
expand the number of stem cell lines available for research and ensure ethnical standards.
