People have been talking a lot lately about embryonic stem cell research. Well, I’ve come up with an idea that might satisfy both sides: split the embryo samples in half and give one half to someone to implant and the other half to the scientists to do research with. This way the genetic material has a chance at life and the scientists get a more diverse sampling to work with. This could be done with any embryos, including the ones that would normally be implanted anyway, so that would be a benefit to the scientists. Of course, anybody who was going to implant any of the embryos that have genetic defects would have to be told about that beforehand. But, surely some of the people who protest their destruction would be willing to volunteer, so that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
