Most Oppose Embryonic Stem Cell Research
All ten candidates were asked for a "yes" or "no" answer on support for embryonic stem cell research -- a question complicated by the fact that former First Lady Nancy Reagan, a strong stem-cell research advocate, was in the audience.
McCain and Giuliani were the only ones who said they would support embyronic stem cell research although they both hedged their answers by saying that was true only as long as cells weren't being created for the express purpose of destroying them.
Romney didn't give a direct answer, repeatedly emphasizing his support for alternative nuclear transfer. "I will not create new embryos through cloning or embryo farming," Romney said.
