Ronald M. Green, an ethicist at Dartmouth College and an adviser to Advanced Cell Technology, said he hoped the new method “provides a way of ending the impasse about federal funding for this research.”Uhhh, don't bet on it, doc.
This issue is PARTIALLY about destroying embryos. What these psychos never mention, but which I believe is a major reason they're against this research is the concept of scientists or doctors creating people, or body parts. More than ever you'll start to hear things like, "we're harvesting body parts...it's like there are body part farms...it's unethical...." Of course, anyone who does harvest a body part, or tries to create a human, is a fucking nutjob. Congress should pass specific laws to protect against such acts. But the other not-so-discussed reason against SCR is the fact that if humans can create humans what does that say about God?
