I have to say, that I’m incredibly impressed with the writing in this piece. I have never seen such masterful dissembling.
The point of the article is to advertise a proposed Amendment to the Missouri State Constitution to protect
“a form of early stem cell research known as somatic cell nuclear transfer, in which the nucleus of an unfertilized egg is replaced with the nucleus of a cell from another body part. The altered egg then is stimulated to grow, and the resulting stem cells are harvested.”
In other words, human embryos (the “altered egg” in the article) are created by cloning of the donor, destroyed to obtain human embryonic stem cells.
Once again: What part of “human” “embryonic” stem cells is unclear?
