What's Wrong With the New Procedure?

The Washington Post creates a story discussing Harvard scientists using human skin cells to produce embryonic cells. The entire story downgrades the progress of the Harvard procedure. NOTHING positive is said about the study. The most negative part of the Harvard project, according to the Post is the fact that it will likely make politicians more cautious about approving legislation that will involve the use of days-old human embryos [aborted fetuses]. Facinating. I had the feeling while reading the article that it did not matter what the scientists could do or find through this new breakthrough - fetuses must be killed for the common good. I sense a political ideology within the Post's advocated skepticism. True, there is more to be done with the new study, but why disparage it?
