Since most cells in the human body possess a unique diploid genome and
are not regarded as morally protectable, the question of whether ES cells are
morally equivalent to somatic cells or whether they are more like human

is it that pluripotent stem
cells are one step down the embryonic staircase? Totipotent
stem cells are capable of producing all tissue, including the trophoblast
necessary for implantation. Totipotent stem cells have the potential of

By Â“somatic therapyÂ” we refer to the treatment of a
