KANSAS CITY (AP) - Backers of an initiative to ban a form of embryonic stem-cell research in Missouri report little financial support, but opponents paint a much brighter picture. A group leading the drive to get the issue on the November ballot, Cures Without Cloning, has raised only $2,000 and is $12,000 in debt. But an organization working against the measure, the Coalition for Lifesaving Cures, reports nearly $600,000 in contributions. Opponents of the research say it creates and destroys human life at its earliest stages. At issue is a procedure known as somatic cell nuclear transfer. A person's cell is injected into a human egg, which is then stimulated to grow as if it had been fertilized by a sperm. Scientists remove the resulting stem cells for research, destroying the newly formed embryo.
