They used unfertilized oocytes, not fertilized eggs, and transferred the nucleus from an adult skin cell into an enucleated oocyte. Calling them embryonic stem cells is a stretch.

You are correct. They are not embryonic stem cells. They are adult stem cells that have been cloned.

The MSM call them embryonic either because they are confused or because they want to keep the confusion going.

True embryonic stem cells have given rise to NO proven medical treatments and lead to ghastly teratogenic mutations. The Left loves them because their master seeks the death of humanity, and he loves the factory-creation & destruction of children.

Cloned adult stem cells OTOH have a proven therapeutic history and are not morally objectionable.

Good point. The purpose of the false reporting is to promote the actual use of embryonic stem cells which the feminazis love.

Embryos, Eggs, Sperm? That’s sooo pre-transhumanist.
