Summary
What is embryonic stem cell research and why is it so controversial? What are the implications of biotech companies manufacturing human embryos as "products"? Wesley J. Smith presents a clear-eyed vision of two potential futures. In one, biotechnology will be a powerful tool to treat disease and improve the quality of our lives. But in another, darker scenario, we will be steered into the antihuman path that Aldous Huxley warned against fifty years ago, before science fiction became science fact
