Imagine standing on a desolate Island, reclusive and isolated from all of mankind. The only creatures that stand in your way towards liberation to the shores of humanity are innocent little () . In order to reach the shores of freedom, you must kill these poor critters. Would you do it? Suggestive of this metaphor (commences) a very similar issue: Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Like the scenario of the island stampeded by the liitle critters, Stem Cell Research involves an extremely controversial awareness to the eyes of the public: the killing of the embryo. Should this unethical procedure be banned or should its potential benefits empower the ruling of its unethicality and immorality? To understand and possibly resolve this highly controversial predicament, it is essential to delve in the details of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. What exactly is a stem cell? A stem cell is unique cell found that can conform into any nucleus and serves multipurpose. It can help create transplant tissues to modify the structure of a malignant human body. According to a source, Stem Cell Research is the Future. The future of revolutionizing medical treatment and it’s potentials are vast espially in finding ways to genetically modify people that may (deem) impossible, while possibly treating diseases such as Alzymers, Perkysings, heart and lung diseases, and the list expands. So why the controversy of its predictated affects, revolutionsary and astonishing? The bikker controversy to its revolutionary impacts are mainly instigated by the “pro-life” organization who argue that it is not worth losing innocent life, or in this case find it unscrupulous to kill innocent embroys who have yet to experience the blessings of life. Using the tissue lining of... ... middle of paper ... ... However, the main issue still stands whether the killing of an embryo is a necessity in order to obtain stem cells. Though it is possible to obtain stem cells from other means, but most researchers find embryonic stem cells the best and most prosperous for medicinal research. The main question still stands whether its predicated affects are enough to justify the concerns of its unethicality. Since I am focusing on primarily embryonic stem cell research which raises issues of unethicality, I was wondering if I should or could compare my issue to that of abortion, since both are primarily dealing with killing of an organism (but it’s debatable whether an embryo is matured enough to undoubtedly be considered a human being). However, I believe that if I do raise the question of abortion, it will lose focus on my specific topic, which is embryonic stem cell research.
