Catholic Leaders Put A Chill On ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

After raising millions for ALS research through the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, some Catholic leaders are gently questioning how the accumulated cash is being spent, CBS 2’s Lou Young reported.

Leaders are worried about embryonic stem cell research using aborted human fetuses. It has become less common in recent years but it still happens, Young reported.

“ALS does some. They’ve already admitted that. Not a whole lot, which is why I’m not quick to condemn them. I would say you guys need a little bit of a wake up call here,” Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League, said.
