The Objective Evil of Exploiting Embryos for their Stem Cells

 "But to Pickup, whether that research pays off isn't the most important issue. Even if embryonic stem cells were his only chance for a cure, it's a chance he'd refuse to take."
I was wrong. The reason to reject any recourse to embryonic stem cell research isn't the fact that it doesn't work, but simply because it is wrong. What makes it the worst sort of crime is that it is done at the expense of human beings who are the least able to defend themselves.
