(CNN) -- The announcement by South Korean scientists that they had created human embryos by cloning and extracted embryonic stem cells has raised concerns around the world. "The South Korean experiment disturbingly goes significantly further. It produces human embryos for the explicit purpose of fatally mining them to obtain bodily materials for experimental purposes." However, groups calling for cures for specific diseases disagree, arguing that human embryos are destroyed daily in fertility clinics, in abortions and in natural miscarriages. "We don't care where they find a cure for this disease," Bob Goldstein of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation added. read the entire article here: http://www.cnn.com/2004/HEALTH/02/13/science.clone/index.html I'm sorry, but is anyone else horrified by this Goldstein's statement that they don't care where they find a cure for a disease? This whole issue not only horrifies me because of the whole embryo thing but also because of the rather naive belief that curing disease is without consequences. There is always a quid pro quo in this world. What if humankind found out that the way to cure a disease involves every baby being born blind. I mean, hey, they'd live right? What's the big deal if they go without eyes so that others don't have to have a disease? Sounds farfetched, but the repercussions of creating an embryo just to extract stuff from it is truly disturbing to me. Where does it end?
