Stem cell research is at an uncertain stage, but the hope it offers is amazing: infinitely adaptable human cells to replace damaged or defective tissue and treat a wide variety of diseases. Yet the ethics of medicine are not infinitely adaptable. There is at least one bright line: we do not end some lives for the medical benefit of others. For me, this is a matter of conviction — a belief that life, including early life, is biologically human, genetically distinct and valuable.
