Stem cell research should be better funded and more widely accepted, as the advancement of stem cells could save thousands of lives, regardless of the ways the stem cells are obtained. Just to make readers think, there are over 120,000 people on the United States organ transplant waiting list, and an average of eighteen of those people will die each day due to the fact that there aren’t enough readily available organs.
