I'm not one of those bleeders :S dunno where that came from.
But thats the point. I am human.
I know an embryo is made up of human cells, and I know its alive. I just cant percieve it as a Human being. I see it as something that could turn into a Human. I'm also not trying to pussy foot around the fact that taking the stem cells from it is going to destroy the Embryo. Are embryos conscious? can they feel?
As callous as it is, surely it's just as callous to discard it when it has potential to help with so many problems facing those who are suffering from problems that embryonic stem cell research could help.
Taking embryos without the mothers consent is a disgrace and I don't believe it should be done, neither do I believe embryos should be made purely for the purpose of research, but essentialy an embryo that is going to be discraded could be put to good use without being wasted.
I believe it would be better if we could use stem cells collected from elsewhere - if - they can produce better resulsts without the ethical dilema underlying the use of embryos.
What you done sounds very intersting, although I understand the concept of it, i don't fully uinderstand it.
Do you think you could maybe send me some links so I could find out about it?
