Germans Get it Right Again

by Jennifer Lahl, CBC President on January 21, 2008


I’ve said before that the Germans Get It. And this latest poll shows they not only get it right again, they get it even more right again.

Latest January 2007 poll shows this in Germany:

-almost 2/3 (61%) of Germans support Adult Stem Cell (ASC) and iPS research while opposing human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) research

-just slightly above 1/4 (26.9%) of Germans support hESC

-2/3 (65.2%) of Germans support the ban of destructive embryo research as stipulated in the 1991 Embryo Protection Act

Good trends since the January 2007 poll done- which still had strong German support for ethical research, but the 2008 polls moving still in a positive direction. Mainly because of the iPS cells breakthrough and successes to date.

TNS infratest, a certified and well-renowned institute, which is not favorably biased toward on the side of the CBC, conducted the polls. Which give even more meaning to this very encouraging data! Rock On Germany!
