More evidence that the two sides in the culture war aren't communicating. San Francisco Chronicle:
Scientists are reporting two new ways of creating embryonic stem cells without killing viable embryos[...]
In one case, embryonic stem cells were made from a genetically abnormal embryo designed to be incapable of developing. The other method was an attempt to fashion stem cells from an embryo without damaging it.
I'm not sure what this is supposed to fix. The objection is that experimenting on human embryos is an affront to their dignity. Essentially everything having to do with human embryos is off-limits by this standard, including creating them for scientific research.
The opponents of stem cell research are the same people that opposed in vitro fertilization. The only thing to do is wait.
