Dr. Fu said "...we have no intention of trying to generate a synthetic structure [that] looks like a complete human embryo"

I'll bet SOMEONE has that intention.
A lot of bad people (and maybe even some not-so-bad ones) embraced slavery because they didn't think blacks were human. And thus, anything could be done to them. The owners would never whip their family , friends, or even strangers... who were white.
Now, we're on the start of the path (and it IS started) to create entities that really AREN'T people. How do we deal with fully developed viable embryos, who can grow into pseudo-men and pseudo-women... who will supposed NOT be human, NOT have souls, and NOT have an ancestry? I see that as only two or three more steps down the road, and you can bet your last dollar that someone will see this as cheap labor who are just a step beyond robots.
Just because a thing CAN be done doesn't mean it SHOULD be done - and I think this is one of them.
Well, at least now we know how Wanda managed it. Embryoid, meet synthezoid. Synthezoid, meet embryoid.
