No human embryologist was asked to witness or to testify, nor any reference made to human embryology, nor was any source of human embryology consulted, quoted or sought.

When human life begins, abortion, partial birth abortion, human fetal tissue research, human embryo research, cloning and stem cell research are core issues of human embryology.

* The NIH Human Embryo Research Advisory Panel, and the National Bioethics Advisory Commission had no human embryologist as a member.

** President Bush’s Council on Bioethics, chaired by Leon Kass, has no member who is a human embryologist.

We have suffered 28 years of trivialization, corruption of, and outright lies about, the science of Human Embryology.

The media will not tell the truth.
