Embryonic Babies Created Specifically to Harvest Stem Cells

A private research institute in Norfolk, Virginia, has announced that it formed embryonic babies from donated eggs and sperm for the sole purpose of destroying them for their stem cells. Scientists at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine defended their work, saying it was at least as ethical as using "spare" frozen embryos.

Despite increasing evidence that stem cells are readily available from more mature tissues and organs, the scientists deliberately created and then slaughtered innocent human lives.
