STICKING POINTS FOR STEM CELLS

A technique for developing stem cell lines from a single cell plucked from a human embryo is unlikely to pass muster with the Bush administration, even though the latest experiments indicate that the embryo can survive the procedure. At least that's how the initial reactions to last week's research revelations are shaping up.

The technique, described in the journal Cell Stem Cell, involves removing one or two cells from the embryo at the eight-cell stage, then allowing the embryo to cont

the argument before was it destroyed a fetus or an embryo right.....ok, so those who oppose the research, what is the problem now?

i think we should be all over this like stink on doodoo
