    Embryonic cells should be allowed to be used because of the medical benefits they provide. They can be used to cure diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, traumatic spinal cord injury, Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, heart disease, and even vision and hearing loss ( 2009). There is no problem using them for medical purposes and it is not immoral to use them for this reason. Embryonic cells have the potential to save lives. Therefore, the usage of embryonic cells outweighs the ethical

    Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can differentiate themselves into specific cell type. There are two types of stem cells. The first one is the adult's stem cell. These stem cells can be found in various places in an adult human body, like the brain, the bone marrow or the liver. The other type of stem cells is the embryonic stem cells. These cells are found in embryos before its implantation in the mother's uterus. At this stage the embryo is divided in two types of cell. The first one

    Introduction Stem cells are undifferentiated cells found in multi-cellular organisms that can proliferate by mitosis to produce either more stem cells or specialized cells that differentiate into the different organs and tissues. In scientific research, stem cells have been obtained and developed from different sources which include: Embryonic Stem cells Embryonic stem cells (ESC) are pluripotent cells that have the potential of proliferating indefinitely into any of the 3 germ layers of cells - endoderm
