Stem cell hopes distorted by 'arrogance and spin' - The Guardian (UK)

A leading scientist who pushed for the controversial research into embryo stem cells will warn today that the challenges are so huge that any cures for disease lie a long way in the future. Lord Winston, who pioneered fertility research in the UK, is to tell the British Association for the Advancement of Science, meeting in Dublin, that during the political campaign to push through legislation in 2001, some parliamentarians were led to believe that clinical treatments were "just around the corner". Some of the lobbying came from patients' groups, but it was stimulated by scientific observations.

Destroying life to heal life is called eugenics or what Joseph Goebells referred to as thinning of the herd. It is wrong and immoral to 'harvest' children for anything at all.
