TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A bill introduced in the Kansas Senate would require the University of Kansas Medical Center to establish a center focusing on adult stem cells.

The bill is sponsored by 22 conservative Republican senators. It would create the Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center at the medical center in Kansas City, Kan.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/Z24O65 ) the bill would require the medical center to appoint a director to oversee patient treatment and research with adult, cord blood and other non-embryonic stem cells. It also would require a 13-member advisory board.

Abortion opponents oppose human embryonic stem cell research because it involves the destruction of embryos.
