AbstractThe article argues that human blastocysts created by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) or in vitro fertilization are, by definition, not obtained from the union of sperm and egg. A means for deriving pluripotent human stem cells can be provided by human research cloning. The belief that human blastocysts created through SCNT could lack potential to develop into human beings is cited as a possible objection for the argument.
