Critiques of Altered Nuclear Transfer (ANT) and Oocyte Assisted Reprogramming (OAR)

In December 2004, Dr. William Hurlbut presented the President's Council for Bioethics with a proposal for Altered Nuclear Transfer (ANT). The proposal, which claimed to offer a technique for producing pluripotent stem cells without creating, and then destroying, an embryo in the process, is outlined in the President's Council for Bioethics' White Paper. Communio has published a series of philosophical, moral, and biological critiques of the ANT proposal.
