Embyonic Stem Cell Reseach, Cloning, and the L.A. Times
Jared Bridges at FRC writes that when he read Los Angeles Times staff reporter Stephanie Simon's report this morning on the continuing fight in the states against embryonic stem cell research (even in states which have passed initiatives to support such research), his jaw nearly dropped when he read these lines:
Embryonic stem cell research typically begins with cloning. Scientists insert the genetic material from an adult human cell into a human egg that's been emptied of its own DNA. The cloned cell is then nurtured in the lab for several days, until it grows into a blastocyst, a microscopic clump of cells that could theoretically develop into a fetus if attached to a uterine wall.
