FIRST-PERSON: Will we use medical treatments developed by ill-gotten means?

DEERFIELD, Ill. (BP)--Of all the advisers President Bush consulted before making his decision on human embryonic stem cells, one of the voices he failed to heed was that of Solomon.

At one level, this seemed to be a fair compromise. Solomon knew, however, that the real mother would sooner give up her child than have him or her cut in two. Thus, the real mother was revealed to all.
