ABSTRACT
The article discusses the outcome and recommendations of a review conducted by Judge Lockhart and an independent committee regarding the effects of embryonic stem cell research on human conception and possible therapies. The review observed that there was not a single view coming from the society regarding the use of human embryos for research. Due to a divided view of politicians on the topic, the Australian government decided not to accept the recommendations of Lockhart.
