embryoids and the 14 day rule

This morning on my way to work I heard an interesting topic on NPR. Currently, there is a 14 day rule where scientists working with embryoids must destroy them at the 14 day mark.  However, now a days there are lots of scientific descovery that could come after 14 days.  Take a look at the article and please let me know your thoughts. http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/03/02/516280895/embryo-experiments-reveal-earliest-human-development-but-stir-ethical-debate
