The Republican nominee for Michigan’s open US Senate seat says she does not support embryonic stem cell research. Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land appeared Friday (10/3) on the Michigan Public Radio program “Michigan Calling.”

She says she only supports using adult stem cells in medical research.

“I do not support embryonic stem cell research. Adult stem cell research is something that’s shown that they can find some uses for, so I would support that.”

Land declined to say whether she’d push to reverse President Obama’s 2009 decision to open up federal funding for broader research involving embryonic stem cells.

Land’s Democratic opponent in the US Senate race is Congressman Gary Peters. He supports embryonic stem cell research.
