Summary
Destroying embryos for research has always sparked heated ethical debates about when life begins and when the appropriate cost of scientific progress hits the ceiling. In this video clip, scientists explore whether new discoveries in stem cell research will finally see the opponents and the supporters peacefully unite. In what's been dubbed the stem cell breakthrough of the decade, Japanese scientists have discovered a new type of stem cell that could eliminate the need for using human embryos.
