"While we recognize and respect embryos as early forms of human life, we do not believe that embryos in a dish have the same moral status as children and adults."
If you look at the protocols for actual experiments, as fodder for medical experimentation, a single human embryo often has a lower moral status than a monkey. Perhaps even lower than a dog.
How exactly do they "respect" human embryos? Or is it just a nice-sounding word to provide PR cover?
If "early" forms of human life are fair game, how "late" a form do you have to be in order to be safe?
