ABSTRACT
This article focuses on how the issue of embryonic stem cell research seems to have political staying power. For now, the debate focuses largely on the U.S. President George W. Bush's policy of providing federal funding for research on a limited number of embryonic stem cell lines, where the embryos in question have already been destroyed. But the stem cell debate, rightly understood, encompasses much more: stem cell advocates see it as a referendum on scientific progress, often seeming to forget that the birth of bioethics in the twentieth century was in considerable measure a result of scientific research that seemed unwilling to recognize moral limits.
