Bioethical Issues on Human Embryonic Stem Cells

Here is a link to a site that has three short and interesting videos featuring scientists Fr. Tad Pacholczyk, PhD and Rick Cohen, PhD, discussing a few of the bioethical issues underlying human embryonic stem cell research. All three short videos are worthy to watch. They bring to light that the ethical concerns surrounding this controversial research are not soley based on religious ideologies, but also touch upon basic human rights issues.
