In 2005 ALL researched organisations that supported:
- fetal tissue, cell or organ use when that tissue is acquired from direct abortion done at any time during nine months of pregnancy
- Human embryo research and/or experimentation
- Human embryonic stem cell research and/or experimentation
- Human cloning
here is the link to their research
from that link:

"The American Diabetes Association applauds this morning's statement by Majority Leader Frist announcing his support of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. By easing restrictions and supporting research that uses embryonic stem cells - while also implementing strong ethical guidelines - this legislation provides hope to the more than 18 million Americans living with diabetes." (emphasis added)
Copy of News Release issued July 29, 2005 mailed along with cover letter on December 22, 2006.
The American Diabetes Association also issued a press release on April 13, 2007, "American Diabetes Association lauds Senate for passage of Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act." The release applauded the Senate's decision to pass S. 5 "which will accelerate stem cell research by easing existing funding restrictions and supporting research that uses embryonic stem cells, while maintaining strict ethical guidelines."

The JDFR position paper on stem cell research can be viewed online and reads, in part:
"Embryonic stem cells hold tremendous promise for the treatment of life-threatening and debilitating diseases such as type 1 diabetes."
There are also a number of links to press releases, newsletter articles and legislative update memos which reiterate JDRF's support for human embryonic stem cell research.
JDRF is a member of both ACSH and CAMR.A friend posted this article to me:
Dr. Robert Goldstein on stem cell research
I wonder if all the facts Dr. Goldstein puts forward about Embryonic stem cell research is true.
