The article focuses on issues related to embryonic stem cell research in the U.S. Last month 206 U.S. Representatives wrote to President George W. Bush, calling on him to fund stem-cell research on spare embryos from a pool of some 400,000 stored in the freezers of in vitro fertilization clinics. These embryos, only a few days old and smaller than the head of a pin, will probably be discarded unless they are donated to science.
