When the mother of a baby under 10 days old aborts the child, the fetus is taken and the embryos that hold the stem cells are harvested for use in research. Polls show that about 85 percent of America does not support embryonic stem cell research because it damages or destroys human embryos.Embryonic stem cell research because it has the potential to cure almost any disease and save billions of lives. The positive outweighs the negative and immorality of destroying the cells for research. So, what exactly are stem cells? Stem cells are blank copies of any cell or tissue in the body.
Large percentage of cloning efforts end in failure, it took hundreds of attempts to clone Dolly. ?No human life should be exploded or extinguish for the benefit for another? President Bush. Due to large percentages of animal cloning ending in failure and the lack of understanding about human cloning, many scientists and physicians strongly believe that it would be unethical to attempt to clone humans. Emotional pressures on a teenager trying to establish his or her identity is also a concern.
Scientifically, an embryo does not begin to live until 14-15 days after conception. The stem cells are taken 6-7 after conception when the embryo is a big mass of cells. This is where the controversy begins. People that are “pro-life” and many churches do not believe in growing embryonic stem cells in laboratories and then discarding them as need. In their eyes, this is murder to an unborn fetus and that this is morally wrong.
Although, cloning happens a lot, only four percent of species have been successfully cloned. Most cloning attempts end in failure because cloning mammals is enormously difficult (See 2 of 2). Out of 123 canine surrogate mothers only three of them became pregnant each only carrying one puppy (Brownlee 1 of 2). This goes to show that cloning is morally dangerous and has harmed animals pointlessly. Cloning humans ... ... middle of paper ... ...e Encyclopedia of Science 15 June 2011: 4.
One hundred million is an astounding number. When that number stands for the amount of animal lives being lost due to the effects of animal testing in the United States per year, alternatives need to be taken into consideration (“Animal”). Although this testing has provided medical breakthroughs in the past, alternatives can replace the animal today because of the rapid increase in technology. Alternatives such as tissue samples and computer models could easily replace the animal (“Update”). Animal testing and experimentation should be banned in the United States because most of the tests performed on animals fail in humans, they are out of date, and regulations are deficient.
But they stress that such an experiment would be grossly irresponsible, due to the high risk of premature death and severe birth defects in clones. Attempting to clone humans is "irresponsible and repugnant and ignores the overwhelming scientific evidence from seven mammalian species cloned so far," Rudolf Jaenisch, a cloning expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology told New Scientist earlier in 2002. Many countries worldwide have passed legislation to ban the creation of cloned babies. But on 5 November, international debate on a global ban was put on hold for at least a year, followi Cloned stem cells may give new lease of life Cloned stem cells may be "younger", "fitter" and much better at
Millions of animals’ lives are lost each year, and many of the results the sacrificed animals gave us are not even relevant to humans. The basic needs of the animals used in these experiments are also not met, and the animals endure many days of pain. 97,123 animals were experimented on without any relief of the pain just in the US in 2010. Many of the animals used in experiments are euthanised or left to die afterwards. Animal testing is cruel, and it would be better for everyone if we would just ban it.
In order to put a single pesticide on the market, it requires over 50 experiments on about 12,000 animals (11 Facts). Even after they do tests on all those animals, 92% of the objects in question that seem to be safe turn out to be a failure in human clinical trials (11 Facts). With that statistic, why do they still test on animals? Yet scientists are still conducting studies that require force feeding subjects that lasts weeks or months, or skin and eye irritation tests where they rub chemicals on shaved skin or drip the chemical into the eyes, all while neglecting to use any pain relievers (11 Facts). Scientists also force animals to swallow large doses of a chemical to test what dose will cause death (11 Facts).
However, in the United States it is a different version, where parents demand their children not to be vaccinated. Vaccines are readily available to people, yet they refuse for many different reasons. Most of the reasons given for not vaccinating children are because of religious reasons, forgetfulness, moral beliefs, monetary issues and the theory that vaccines cause other health related issues, such as autism. The United States have been privileged with support from the government to vaccinate all people who requested to be vaccinated against preventable diseases. Many people around the world are powerless in getting vaccinated and most die due to lack of healthcare and availability of vaccines.
Surprisingly enough, abortion was mainly opposed by men while tens of thousands of women each year had this illegal procedure done even though many died from lack of doctoral knowledge to safely completing the operation, therefore preventing women from bleeding out. (Kramer) To understand Hemingway’s hidden meaning, we must first understand what a white elephant truly is. A white elephant is a cumbersome gift that is usually unwanted. The gift here is the woman’s unborn baby. The woman, Jig, compares the couple’s situation to the hills that are separated in the valley by the rail line, that they are able to see across from where they are sitting at the train station.
