11. Stem Cell Topic: Ethics Influencing Science?
asexual creation of a human embryo . We suddenly
find ourselves in the middle of the abortion debate. By beginning with hES
cells, scientists think this debate could be avoided. However, the use of hES
cells does not avoid the embryo problem

removing pluripotent stem cells from the category of embryos--and, thereby,
exempting them from legal restrictions on

EG Cells Embryonic germ cells .
These cells are found in a specific part of the Embryo/fetus called the
gonadal ridge, and normally develop into mature gametes .
