Q. Somewhere recently I saw an article on [embryonic stem cell research]. Do you know where we may find the Church's position on this issue?

A. Many people are inquiring about the Church's stance on stem cell research. As a result the Church recently released the following statement:

"While the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles have not taken a position at this time on the newly emerging field of stem cell research, it merits cautious scrutiny. The proclaimed potential to provide cures or treatments for many serious diseases needs careful and continuing study by conscientious, qualified investigators. As with any emerging new technology, there are concerns that must be addressed. Scientific and religious viewpoints both demand that strict moral and ethical guidelines be followed."
