Because stem cells are unspecialized, they can replace any cell in any part of the body, so as to have a cure for many diseases. There are strong arguments torward both sides of the debate, and stem cell research deserves much more attention from the public than it is getting, for it has a chance to cure many diseases; however, it is inhumane, and there are a few, weak, possible solutions to fix this problem. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that divide into different cell types. (Stem cell - about). For many years, scientists have been researching stem cells to see how they can treat different health issues, such as causes and cures for birth defects, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, spinal cord injury, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis (Stem Cells - diseases).

One of the most debated topics in the science world is over human cloning. Human cloning has caused many other scientists to look at it differently than those who have ethical issues over cloning another human. Human cloning should not be banned because cloning could help with stem research, or with medical health problems, and with diseases. Issues like, “is it safe”? Or like “will the clone be disabled or defected”?
