Human embryos are human beings
"Recent scientific advances show that the medical treatments that researchers hope to develop from embryonic stem cells may be developed by using adult stem cells instead. Adult stem cells can be obtained without doing harm to the adults from whom they come. Thus there is no valid argument in favor of using embryonic stem cells. But even if there were benefits to be had from such experiments, they would not justify destroying innocent human beings."
