Ethics Violation Sinks Stem Cell Researcher

File this one in the Straining at Gnats While Swallowing Camels Category:

From the point of view of the press (who are on this story all over the web today), the ethics violation involved here is that the Korean veterinarian, Hwang Woo-Suk, obtained human female eggs for his experimentation from members of his staff. Okay...but does no one dare report that the most grievous and barbaric ethics violation committed by Mr. Woo-Suk is his destroying human lives in the subsequent course of his research?
