ABSTRACT
The article discusses the debates on embryonic stem cell research in the United States, human equality in particular. It mentions that the debate is about a simple and uncontroversial biological fact that human life begins when embryo is created, and limits on science to protect human life are also not much contested. Whether those limits should apply in the case of the life of an embryo is questioned. In relation, it mentions about the circumstances where embryo is outside the body of a mother which is an extreme and imaginable, but still does not change the question. Relative to the topic, an overview of Jon Shields reasoning and studies are offered.
