Gives ok detail about about stem cells, but doesn't go into in depth information. Does have simple pictures for non-advanced students.

This would make a very good ethics discussion for class. It is always very important to include ethics in science courses because students have their own opinions and this gives them the opportunity to express their beliefs.

Technical Remarks:

If you choose to use something like this for a class discussion, a set of ground rules must be established before entering the discussion, since students can get quite passionate about ethical issues such as this.
