More Editorials on Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Previously, I wrote about some of the editorials in the medical journal, The Lancet, pertaining to stem cell research.  Almost simultaneously, the New England Journal of Medicine  also published three editorials on the same subject.  Now I have learned (via Eye of the Storm) that a bill (H.R. 4812) has been introduced in the US House of Representatives that would promote stem cell research. 

Two of the editorials were written by members of the President's Council on Bioethics, Dr. Sandel  and Dr. McHugh; the other was written by Dr. Spar, a professor at the Harvard Business School. 

In this post, I review the three editorials and add a comment or two of my own.  Read the rest at The Rest of the Story
