Skip to comments.“Embryo-Safe” Experiment Just another Stem Cell Fraud

The fierce public debate over killing human embryos to create lines of embryonic stem cells is over; tout fini; THE END. It was buried with a stake thrust through its heart by a study published in the worlds most prestigious science magazine, Nature. Trust the media:
Stem Cells Created With No Harm to Human Embryos (Washington Post)
In New Method for Stem Cells, Viable Embryos (New York Times)
Embryos Spared in Stem Cell Creation (USA Today)
"Stem Cell Advance Spares Embryos (L.A. Times)
On second thought, dont trust the media.
In fact none of the 16 embryos involved in the study by medical director Robert Lanza of Advanced Cell Technology (ACT) survived. ...... snip
. ......ACT stock suddenly shot up 500%......"

I really appreciate Fumento's succint, meaty style of writing.
Whatever you think of the content, it is VERY well referrenced. This short article has about 26 links in it.
Someone had to have cashed in options and moved to Aruba.
Well, there you go.
Funny. I thought the debate ended when the FDA made Plan B an over-the-counter drug. It kills human embryos, too. Do it yourself at home.
It was the journal editors who screwed up by implying that the embryos were not destroyed. The authors of the article specifically stated they destroyed the embryos in their cell extraction protocol.
How can this be? I've always been told that scientists are only interested in fact, that they use the Scientific MethodTM to ensure that only truth comes out of their laboratories. I have been assured time and time again that the worldview of the scientists never enters into what they do.
How will I survive, how will the world survive this heresy?
A company will seek results, while the government would continue to pour money into a dead issue for years.
I don't care about a few cells, period. No matter where they came from, nor how they are disposed. I shed more cells everytime I cough.
Same intensity, and logic, of the PETA and ELF folks, if you ask me.
Looks like Mr. Fumento's lying to you too. See post #9 for the rest of the story. . .
Yep, this article, too, is misleading. Single cells are commonly removed from embryos during genetic testing without (apparently) harming them; there have been many babies born from these embryos. The breakthrough was that stem cell lines can be cultured from these single cells.
