AP Uses The Words "human" and "sacrifice" in Embryonic Stem Cell Story

The Curt Jester notes an interesting detail in a recent AP story on the search for ethical means of obtaining human stem cells for research:

From the AP story: "Currently, scientists must sacrifice human embryos to harvest such cells, which can form any tissue type and are seen as valuable for studying and treating illnesses like diabetes and Parkinson's disease."

As the Curt Jester says: "Alleluia."

Reading this makes me proud to be Catholic, the only faith to have spoken up aggressively against using embryonic stem cells. If it is true that abortion is a poverty, then human sacrifice is slavery.
