Our neighboors were over last night (his wife is pregnant), we got into the subject of cord blood banking. They asked me if I banked my son's cord blood and I told them no I donated it. She immediatly got upset and said you "You know that they use donated cord blood for stem cell research!" My immediate reply was that yes I do know, and that is part of the reason why I donated it in the first place. This obviously upset her and she felt the need to sit there and lecture me and give me religious quotes and things of that sort. My question to ya'll is: Would you donate your child's cord blood if you knew if would be used for stem cell research?
