    So, the benefit of stem cells without all of that debate about getting them from embryos? Sounds good to me. Hopefully they'll figure out some way to get this to work with humans, so this can happen.

    yeah i always knew science probably didnt need to "end a life" to do this, but the fact remains that those embryos are thrown in the trash even if they arent used for stem cell research
