ABSTRACT
The article discusses the controversy regarding the notion of the embryo in stem cell research in the U.S. President George W. Bush has pledged to veto bills that would provide funding to stem cell research claiming that embryos are the society's most vulnerable members. The introduction of new technologies used to test pregnancy has only posed another threat to the embryos as women can chose whether to deliver the baby or undergo abortion.
