umm... I wouldn't go for the killing, but I would go for the saving part. there are ways to take embryonic stem cells without killing anything.

Right but I am just saying. The problem with removing embryonic cells by biopsy is that they can damage babies internal organs and cause them alot of pain. Doctors don't necessarily kill babies they just take already dead ones. What I meant by kill 100 to save 1000 is that sometimes the ends justify the means and with a baby that has no conception of life and the preservation of life they can be culled so to speak for the sake of the diseased.
