Stem cells - a thought

In order for the conservatives' stem cell position to be consistent, wouldn't they have to mandate that each blastocyst be carried to term? Many of the blastocysts that would be used for embryonic stem cell research would be destroyed anyway. Are they trying to say that destroying life for no reason is better than destroying life to save life? Wouldn't they have to start mandating that women living in areas with blastocyst surpluses come in and carry those lives to term?
