Wesley J. Smith maintains a blog site on the “life issues”, which I appreciate very much. While he also opposes abortion, lately he has focused more on other life issues. A recent item on stem cell research:
This is potentially huge: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells, which permit tailor made, patient specific pluripotent stem cell lines to be created ethically without the use of embryos, can now be made without using genetic material.
You could probably find that item reported in the mainstream media, but only if you look really hard. And asking the question, “do we really need to clone human embryos”? Forget it.
