Divorcing Science From ethics "ideology"

When we divorce science and ethics, we get things like Eugenics. This leads to things like dictating that people's roles in society. Slavery. Euthanizing retarded people. Genocide.

Yeah, not a good road to go down, Barack.

I heard a paraphrased quote from well-known stem cell researcher Jamie Thompson who said something to the effect that if embryonic stem cell research doesn't give you pause, you haven't thought about it enough.

I'd like to find the source of that quote and get the actual quote.
