William Luse takes apart Charles Krauthammer’s article where he is against cloning, but for using embryos as a result of IVF for research. This argument has been on the rise over the years as a sort of compromise, but it is logic itself and the sanctity of human life that is compromised. I could never understand this line of reasoning that using these embryos for embryonic research was reasonable. What would be the purpose of it even if it was an ethical use of those embryos? If ever embryonic stem-cell research actually developed a therapy that worked it would instantly create a demand for a quantity of human embryos that would not be satisfied by even the very unfortunate large amount currently frozen. It would produce a demand for cloned embryos since once there was an actual cure, moral problems would soon be discarded in favor of these cures. So to be both against creating embryos for research and for research that could only end in the demand for cloned embryos is totally inconsistent.
