The God Cells: A Fetal Stem Cell Journey
Stem Cell research and therapy have been growing at a rapid rate over the past 15 years. Scientific advances coupled with consumer demand has proven that stem cell therapy is the wave of the future, and is poised to change the face of medicine. Originally harvested by abortions, Fetal Stem Cells are arguably the most contested and controversial form of stem cell therapy to date. Not only does this technology face enormous religious opposition, but commercial and regulatory agencies wish to slow down the approval process for fetal stem cells due to profit and market reasons—creating an atmosphere for a seemingly insurmountable dilemma. The God Cells takes the audience on a journey by following those who seek fetal stem cell therapy abroad—while avoiding these seemingly insurmountable roadblocks at home. [ “THE GOD CELLS isn't the first documentary to take on a controversial subject, but... it might be one of the few to change some minds.” - The Village Voice ] “intriguing” - Los Angeles Times [“gut-wrenching” - Film Journal] [“powerful” - Film Inquiry]

It's obvious to me why the FDA/AMA wants nothing to do with this technology as it would pretty much destroy pharma in the US as many of the major illnesses would be healed. Everyone should see this movie and also Winter on Fire to get a feeling about the Ukraine and what they've gone through to get to this point.
The documentary film maker has done other in-depth documentaries which I have watched and enjoyed. I recommend this film to people I care about. I'm seriously considering getting fetal stem cells.
Overall: excellent film!
