Professor against Embryonic Stem Cell Research

I just couldn't resist sending this link!!!

In 2002 Dr. Robert Cranston, Medical Director for Medical Subspecialties, former Head of the Division of Neurology at Carle Clinic Association, and Clinical Assistant Professor at the UIUC-COM, wrote a letter describing why he's against embryonic stem cell research.

Among other things, he says:
"1. Are, or might the embryos, which would necessarily be destroyed in order to obtain stem cells, human?
2. In analyzing the growth and development of the human being from the union of the egg and the sperm to full adulthood, is there ever a specific time when one can say that this creature is not yet a human?

I can think of no such point in the continuum. Embryologists have conceded this for a number of years in major textbooks. When the 46-chromosome creature becomes a self-directing entity, moving forward to a birth-able state, one has a human being."

WOW!  I would love to hear him speak on this topic!
What do you think?

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
