Thought for the day

Most people who oppose abortion or experimentation with embryonic stem cells claim that the basis for their opposition is a belief that embryos are the moral equivalent of human beings and that destroying an embryo is the moral equivalent of murder. But do they really believe this?

If such a person were in a room in a hospital which was burning down, and the room contained one five-day-old baby and a freezer holding 100 five-day-old (microscopic) embryos, and he was able to save only the baby or the embryos but not both, which do you think he would save?
