"Cynthia B. Cohen explains just what stem cells are, where they come from, and how they function, bringing in the most recent scientific discoveries in this challenging field. She then takes the reader through the leading secular and religious arguments regarding the compelling question of the moral significance of embryos. In response, she offers a way to meet our responsibilities both to very early embryos and to those who are sick and suffering, while taking into account basic values at the heart of our democratic polity. The notion of human dignity receives new treatment here in an explosion of the moral import of creating human-nonhuman chimeras in stem cell research."@en ;
