What fails to be said, regarding embryonic stem cells; is that there is a huge amount of embryonic stem cells that are thrown away after a live birth. The umbilical cord and the placenta are full of embryonic stem cells - and these are simply disposed of.

If scientists want to study embryonic stem cells; there exists a source that poses no moral or ethical issues ... why not pursue that one?

As far as I know, umbilical and placental stem cells are considered “adult” stem cells.
