Comments on: U.S. approves first “ethical” embryonic stem cell lines Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: hope4lf Sat, 05 Dec 2009 16:32:33 +0000 What a sad state of affairs this is that human embryos are referred to as “leftovers”. Is this deliberate desensitization or what? The more we use this type of language the more we negate the humanity of man at his/her earliest stages. Please just state what they are even if it means typing in a few more words. These are embryos that parents are chosing not to implant. Calling them leftovers turns my stomach.
