Regarding the proposed state constitutional amendment (2/21, Local, “Stem-cell ballot language rewritten”): Biology and common sense tell us that a few cells in a lab dish are no more a human being than a few cells from my finger.
Until the embryo is attached to the womb, begins to differentiate into organs, etc., can it possibly be considered even close to human?
But some people would like to force on everyone their belief that a few undetermined cells are a human. What possible scientific reasoning can they come up with to defend this idea?
I really take offense to having a religious view stand in the way of progress that could relieve human suffering and do so much good for humanity.
