I'm Sure the Fundies'll Find A Problem with This Too

Stem-cell advance whets debate because now, instead of destroying the embryo, a single cell is removed and can be "taught" to grow into stem cells. No destruction required.

But I already heard someone having a problem with it and calling for more research because its impossible to tell what harm is caused by the removal of the single cell. Notwithstanding the fact that a single cell is removed for genetic testing with a pretty fair bit of regularity and this technique just delays the testing to see if the cell splits and then one cell goes to genetic testing and one goes to the stem cell incubator school.

I'm kind of looking forward to irrational life begins at conception arguments to try and knock this latest advancement. Because someone ALWAYS has a problem with something that science is doing.
