The hits keep on coming…

With AIDS on the way out, it’s time to get these paralyzed folks walking again.

A South Korean woman paralyzed for 20 years is walking again after scientists say they repaired her damaged spine using stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood.

Hwang Mi-Soon, 37, had been bedridden since damaging her back in an accident two decades ago.

Last week her eyes glistened with tears as she walked again with the help of a walking frame at a press conference where South Korea researchers went public for the first time with the results of their stem-cell therapy.

It’s too bad Jesus told the president that stem cells are evil. Sorry about that, crippled folks in the US (And yes, I’m aware that these were umbilical cells, I’m just still in a bad mood after the election).
