The status of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embryo human embryo] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embryonic_stem_cell embryonic stem cells] are sensitive topics. With the present state of technology, creating a human embryonic [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stem_cell_line stem cell 'line'] typically requires the destruction of a human embryo that was created but not used for fertility treatments. Other methods that are under investigation but have not yet proved successful are the removal of some embryonic cells from an existing embryo, and/or, more widely discussed, a technique variously known as research cloning, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Therapeutic_cloning therapeutic cloning], or somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). SCNT is particularly controversial, for reasons unrelated to differing beliefs about the status of the embryo.
