Embryonic stem cells researches remain as a difficult topic for many because embryonic stem cells can turn into different cell and tissues in the body which can help to find the therapy for diseases like diabetes, cancers, Parkinson’s and repair joints (Susman); however, the only way to obtain the cells is to destroy the embryo (Prentice). While both sides still have different opinions, I still claim that stem cell researchers must not be allowed to use stem cells from aborted babies to cure diseases because it is against religious views of morality, embryonic stem cells remain as failure compare to adult stem cells, and there are other stem cells from other part of the body can help cure diseases without destroying the embryo. Stem cells research from aborted babies is against religious view of morality. The only way to obtain the embryonic stem cells is from the embryo, which would destroy the potential of life (Prentice). Dr. Hurbult states “Human life begins with fertilization and end with death” (Susman). Dr. Hurbult’s position is helpful because once the person is dead, they don’t have any job to do in this world. Besides, since when did a baby became a source of stem cells to let the researchers to get their hand to do researches which they don’t even sure about its effective. To put it another way, humans are not research materials for medical researches. Not only it is against religious view, embryonic stem cells still remain as failure compare to adult stem cells. Adult stem cells had been succeeded in treating patients with sickle cell diseases, cancers, heart damages, and more. Scientist could use a patient's own cells to create red blood cells for transfusion. Adult stem cells that are taken from bone marrow and cord ... ... middle of paper ... ...ain them without harming the donors. Admittedly, embryos often get discard or being store in freezer; many believe that instead they should be used for medical research, but human are not just mere materials for medical research after they died. In another word, embryonic stem cells researches from aborted babies are out of question. To summarize these embryonic stem cells can cure many diseases, but for that to happen the embryo will be destroyed. Even though there are some still believed in embryonic stem cells, stem cells researcher must not be allowed to use stem cells from aborted babies to cure diseases because it is against religious philosophy, embryonic stem cells are not effective compare to adult stem cells, and stem cells can be obtain from other part of the body without harming in donors and had already cured diseases such as blood and immune disorders.
