MERE CLUSTER OF CELLS
Good post at Mirror of Justice about how ridiculous it is to refer to an embryo this way, and then refer to those who disagree as the ones who hate science.

Which leads me to another hypocrisy. On the one hand, those supporting embry-destroying research want us to regard embyos a mere cluster of cells when deciding whether it's ethical to perform them. But then when it comes time to fund research, this "mere clusted of cells" is supposedly the key to making the lame walk and the blind see, and must be funded, even at the risk of bankrupting a state.

It seems that if these were mere clusters of cells, it wouldn't be such a big deal.
