The article focuses on the growing opposition against embryonic stem cell research. The successful development of embryonic stem cells without destroying the embryo by a team of scientists led by Robert Lanza at Massachusetts-based biotechnology firm Advanced Cell Technology Corp., has been appreciated by some opponents of the embryonic stem cells. If a single cell of embryo has the potential to develop stem cells then destruction of each single cell should be opposed ethically.
