• Palin does not support stem cell research believing that embryonic stem cell research results in the destruction of life thus conflicting with her pro-life position.
• Sarah Palin voiced her opposition to human embryonic stem cell research in an interview with Charles Gibson of ABC news, even though a McCain campaign radio advertisement had let out that a McCain government would be for stem cell research.
• Palin however is for all kinds of the different adult stem cell research approaches. In Palin's interview with Gibson she stated, "My personal opinion is we should not create human life, create an embryo and then destroy it for research. And, thankfully again, there are other options, like, as I mentioned, the adult stem research."
• When questioned about the reversal of Roe v Wade by the Los Angeles Times, she answered that "I think it should, and I think that states should be able to decide that issue. I am pro- life. I do respect other people's opinion on this also, and I think that a culture of life is best for America. What I would like to do, when elected vice President, with John Mc Cain, hopefully,[is]to be able to reach out and work with those who are on the other side of this issue."
