Dobson is standing by his comment likening stem cell research to Nazi experiments of live subjects. Media Matters reports that he refuses to apologize to Jews for the comments and had one of his subordinates insist that Jews should agree with him.
The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America supports stem cell research.
I'm still waiting for Dobson to explain why he thinks the imago Dei must have a genetic structure rather than a spiritual one. Logically, that would mean that sin -- which corrupted the imago -- also had a genetic structure.
If eight cell blastocysts are fully human persons -- created in the image of God, but with a propensity to sin -- then why don't we have genetic engineers searching for the "original sin" gene. If they could find it and remove our rebellious nature, we could all be sinless and perfect.
Then no one would have to be "born again" and Jesus' death would have been unnecessary.
