CWN Editor's Note: The “embryoids,” described in an article in Nature, are synthetic entities “made by coaxing human stem cells to form structures found in very early human embryos.” (The teahcing Church has issued a number of documents on stem cell research that distinguish immoral research that involves the destruction of human embryos from morally licit research that involves adult stem cells.)
