Stem cells have offered scientists and the world a new doorway to treat diseases and help millions. The major, significant discovery of stem cells is their ability to differentiate into any cell type which can help rebuild damaged organs. One thing for certain is that these cells brought huge controversies over their uses, how scientists should obtain them, and if the embryos should be used at all on the basis that they should be held on the same morals as humans. Although with these monumental issues at hand, researchers have not given up hope that one day these stem cells will be widely accepted and be used for the benefit of the people.
President Obama recognized the sensitivity of this issue, but proceeded to reverse the ban, despite the protest of pro-life and certain religious groups who argue against the use of embryonic stem cells for research on moral and ethi... ... middle of paper ... ... find it very exciting to imagine what treatments may be available to future generations, made possible through stem cell research. I encourage anyone opposed to embryonic stem cell research based on basic information taken from a news report, to do the research. Imagine what a difference finding a cure for many diseases could make in the healthcare crisis our country currently faces. I encourage you to consider this as you go to the polls next year to elect our next President. Works Cited Frequently Asked Questions.
"Everybody who thought it would proceed slowly and could be stopped was wrong," said Lee Silver, a professor from the University of Princeton. Without proper research to support the ban, the premature ban should be reconsidered and appealed. Cloning could provide a way for infertile couples to produce children genetically similar to themselves, a method of creating spare organs for transplants, and a cure for genetic disease. Human cloning may provide numerous benefits to mankind and should not be banned. Some people say that it is morally wrong and others are scared that a leader, such as Sadam Husian, will clone himself.
Should it not be ethical to allow the destruction of a few embryos in order to help the millions of people who suffer from diseases.“Embryonic stem cell research argue that it is actually wrong to protect the lives of a few unborn human beings it will help the millions who suffer.”(The center for bioethics & human dignity, n.d.). What do people believe to be positive or wrong about embryonic stem cell research.
Science is the most attracted to these cells, because they are counter parts to the adult stem cells. The human embryo is destroyed in the process of extracting the stem cells. Thus, the conflict of morality and helping those already alive to survive. Even though stem cell research could save lives, hence appealing to one of the two morals, it destroys the other embryoti... ... middle of paper ... ...could lift a pain from millions of people and take back their ability to walk and solve all disabilities. Is it not worth a few undeveloped embryos to research, that people have wanted to donate to save an exponential amount of lives in the future?
Others are afraid that cloning could me misused by governments and corporations creating clones to serve as slaves or soldiers to fight endless wars. I think that fear is the main argument against human cloning due to the fact that this is a newer branch in science and people are not very educated with the core concept of cloning. I believe that cloning is acceptable only if it is for the right reasons. My opinion is cloning should be allowed due to the countless possibilities we could gain in the health care field and human well being. For years, researchers have been working on finding a way to cure genetic diseases and save lives by cloning genes and organs.
Scientists attempt to map out all the genes in the human genome, hoping the completion of the Project will bring great advances to medicine and biology. However, although genetic engineering of human and new technologies empower people such as the scientists and parents to bring them much benefits, genetics also create many ethical and social issues. Fist of all, germ line gene therapy brings up many ethical issues concerning the future generations. Gene therapy is generally accepted by the public. Somatic gene therapy only altars the genetic structure of an individual, therefore the gene will not be passed on to the children.
Like In Vitro fertilization, humans need to open their eyes and accept these new techniques that are creeping over the horizon which can not only save lives, but increase our longevity as a society. Many critics of cloning and gene therapy do not stop to think about the possibilities of these technologies or about the possibility that one of their offspring could need some genetically engineered or cloned substance to save their life in the future. They worry about one or two scientists trying to clone humans instead of the possibilities that will be available to the world to fight disease. If humans would just take a look at the bigger picture they would realize that cloning and gene therapy will not be the downfall of society, but will increase our longevity and health as a whole.
Using stem cells or stem cell research is a way to develop therapies to regenerate damaged organs and heal people who are suffering from terrible diseases. While some believe that human embryo is not to be destroyed, they don’t have to be. In most cases and if regulated by the government all cases; If there is no potential for the eggs to become human beings, then why not use them for the greater good? Stem cell research in my opinion is something that can change the lives of many people, and give them an opportunity to live a better and healthier life.
People think that just because one stem cell has the potential to become a human being, research need... ... middle of paper ... ...trying to remove the damaged tissue and cause serious risks to the patient. The endless possibilities that stem cells can help cure thousands diseases is an amazing feeling but without the proper funding nothing will be possible. It is obvious that the Stem Cell Research of America or other medical group cannot keep its additional research of this curing cell without trying new and safer ways of running these experiments. In order to provide a better quality of life to the people, certain restrictions need to be hoist to further its scrutiny of how diseases and injuries can be treated in the near future. The issue of stem cells and their use for medical research is very complicated to say the least.
