Stem cells: controversy between the Church and the Telethon

A few days before the 20th edition of the Téléthon, the controversy between the Association française contre les myopathies (AFM) and the Catholic Church has risen a notch. The Church questions the use of the funds raised for research on embryonic stem cells and the screening of sick embryos during in vitro fertilization, which she considers contrary to Christian ethics. This opposition worries the Telethon officials, who fear the repercussions on donations. Commentary on illustration images (laboratory, cells under the microscope) alternating with the interviews of Michel DUBOST, bishop of Evry-Corbeil-Essonnes, and René FRYDMAN, gynecology-obstetric service reproductive medicine, Hôpital Béclère.
