From Cryo-Cell :
- Did you know that over 12,000 umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants occurred worldwide to treat over 75 different diseases?
- Did you know that cord blood stem cells are 100% match for the infant donor and 1 in 4 match for a sibling?
I didn’t know those statistics. That’s amazing!
I’ve written several times about the remarkable technology behind adult stem cell and umbilical cord blood stem cell research and harvesting. I am 110% against abortion and I’m 110% against killing innocent unborn babies for harvesting their stem cells. Stem cell research abounds on adult cells and umbilical cord blood– and there are many, many benefits that far outweigh using unborn babies as spare parts.
Cryo-Cell is a company that specializes in cord blood banking– they are actually the leader in the industry– and have over 175,000 clients and growing. Cryo-Cell provides kits to parents; when their baby is born, a small sampling of the umbilical cord blood is harvested, and the sample is shipped to the Cryo-Cell facilities. It is placed in storage for any future use for the child or siblings. New parents are rapidly becoming aware of the benefits of cord blood storage.
