Is it hypocritical for someone to support human stem cell research but not support medical research on animals?

Which stem cells? Embryonic stem cells are seen as not to have much value. You would be hypocritical to support animals over humans so yes in that case. Stems cells you can harvest without lose of life is all good.

No, animals are living creatures - stem cells are cells.

Have cells, not are cells.

An animal (or human) is more than the sum of its parts.

Testing on cells is different than testing on the whole animal.
