The Problem with Embryonic Stem Cells

These are the hard questions that should be asked. Not because the answers are unknown, but because people are avoiding the questions and obscuring the answers. This is not a complex issue, but some people make it out to be so complex so that we should leave it up to "the experts" (TM). It's really simple: the science of DNA and embryology are clear that the embryo, from the moment of conception, is a unique human being. Forcibly destroying a human being for therapeutic purposes is wrong. It is so wrong that nature rebels against it: compared to years of success for adult stem cell therapy, embryonic stem cell therapy refuses to work.
