A July 24 Associated Press article by Jan Silva, reporting on the European Union's efforts to fund stem cell research that does not involve human cloning or embryo destruction, characterized research that would entail embryo destruction as "killing embryos." The article's headline read: "EU will fund human stem cell research without cloning, killing embryos." The body of the article included the sentence "[o]pponents [of embryonic stem cell research] object because scientists take those cells from a 5-day-old embryo, killing it."
