Do you support stem cell research?

Look at this poll in the secular website: Do you support stem cell research?

Of course, the poll question is poorly written. If I answer "yes" I say the truth, for I support adult stem cell research. But since they may actually mean embryonic stell cell research, the kind that kills a human, I actually voted "no".

STLtoday can plausibly say that based on the "yes" votes, most people support clone-and-kill research. And just as plausibly, they can say that those who vote "no" are ignorant, since even traditional moralists agree that adult stem cell research is ethical. Maybe you shouldn't vote!
