Ethical ways (?) to produce embryonic stem cells, 2

blog.bioethics.net has a post condemning Nature for its publication of two articles on alternative methods for producing embryonic stem cells. The author says that the science isn't important enough to meet Nature's standards. (Nature is perhaps the most important scientific periodical in the world. For example, the original Watson and Crick paper was published it its pages. It is not freely available on the Internet.)

The author goes on to say that these methods, should they be tested in humans, and prove effective, will still probably meet with religious/ethical objections, and indicates the reasons for such objections.
