Where is the ethical threshold in stem cell research?

Is it acceptable to use human stem cells from embryos created in a lab? Are mouse embryonic cells permissible? This research is showing promise to cure an astonishing range of diseases. It has been shown to greatly improve the condition of autistic children. It is being used to heal injured knees. And human embryonic stem cells have been used to grow new matter in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, who then improved. What are your thoughts?
