Department of Health and Human Services, "Draft National Institutes of
Health Guidelines for Research Involving Human Pluripotent Stem Cells (December
1999)," www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/draftguidelines.htm. The American
Association for the Advancement of Science supports both public and private
funding for stem cell research derived from all sources; yet the AAAS
recognizes that many religious traditions that take a developmentalist view of
personhood will be at odds with those opposing use of embryos for anything
other than pregnancy. Despite such unsettled religious differences, says the
AAAS, these concerns need not exclude publicly-funded research activities on
cell lines that have already been established. See: Audrey R.Chapman, Mark S.
Frankel, and Michele S. Garfinkel, Stem Cell
Research and Applications (November 1999). http://www.aaas.org/spp/dspp/sfrl/projects/stem/main.htm.
