Umbilical Cord Blood Banking
Lucynda - posted on 01/20/2010
I looked into this myself, very expensive, but we worried that when they 'bank' the cord blood that so called 'extras' could be sent and used to anyone anywhere for anything (various reseach endeavors) and no one would give us a guarantee that I wasn't possibly contributing to less-than-moral endeavors. I really wanted to be able to do this, for my child and/or anyone else. But since the cord blood banking companies do not all share my moral beliefs I'm waiting until they will give me a guarantee.

it promotes the preservation of life. ITS a GOOD THING. :) The cord blood is from your own baby vs. say, an aborted fetus. Im not sure you should wait for an official stance from the vatican. Are they even up to snuff on this new technology? Might be a while, is all im saying. IF you have the chance to bank the cord blood...by all means dont miss the boat!
