ABSTRACT
This article focuses on new research by Robert Lanza and colleagues that demonstrated the feasibility of deriving human embryonic stem cells using a technique that does not harm the embryo. A more careful examination of those results showed that the method was theorized, but not proven. A criticism of the research is that it is being designed to appease religious or political concerns about stem cell research. The views of U.S. President George W. Bush are discussed.
