In the recent scientific world there has been research done on stem cells. Stem cells are specially g...
  • Embryo Stem Cell Research
    1,059 words
    Stem cells show potential for many different areas of health and medical research, and studying them can help us understand how they transform into the dazzling array of specialized cells that make us what we are. Some of the most serious medical conditions, such as cancer and birth defects, are caused by problems that occur somewhere in this process. A better understanding of normal cell development will allow us to understand and perhaps correct the errors that cause these medical conditions. ...

    1,463 words
    Embryonic Stem Cell Research What if there was a way to cure previously in-curable diseases with the help of something in the very first stages of human life, but thousands upon thousands of lives had to be taken to perfect the use of this material? That is exactly what is happening with embryonic stem cells around the world. Pro-life activists, who originally organized to stop the abortions of unborn fetuses, were most angered with the process of actually destroying an embryo solely for researc...
  • Embryos For Stem Cell Research

    Stem Cell Research One of the most controversial topics these days is Stem Cell Research. There seems to be a split opinion among societies about the research and whether it is socially and morally acceptable. As a society, we need to open our minds to the possibility of broadening our scientific horizons with stem cell research, and take the time to learn and understand whatever we can about it. There are a lot of people who don't know exactly what Stem Cell Research is which contributes to why...

    State laws may restrict some or all sources for embryonic stem cells or specifically permit certain activities. State laws on the issue vary widely. Approaches to stem cell research policy range from laws in California and New Jersey, which encourage embryonic stem cell research, including on cloned embryos, to South Dakota's law, which strictly forbids research on embryos regardless of the source. If, however, a fetus is aborted for the health of the mother in South Dakota, the fetus may be use...

Joni Tada, a quadriplegic who would benefit greatly from a breakthrough in spinal cord injury research - a potential cure of stem cell research - said, during an interview with Larry King, "If we violate a human embryo today, tomorrow we will become callous about the fetus, then the infant, and then people with physical defects. We want to influence society with reasoned judgment, strength of character, and a commitment to improve our culture, not diminish it". An...

    Federal funding for stem cell research has been in debate in Congress since 1995, when the annual appropriation bills put a ban on the use of federal funding for experimentation of human embryos. Nuclear transplantation's are creating cloned human embryos not to make a zygote but using it for a source of stem cells, which may have the cures for certain diseases. 1998 was the first time a researcher isolated embryonic stem cells and it took place at the University of Wisconsin. Federal funding fo...
  • Research On Adult Stem Cells

    Stem cells look to be nothing more than a hollow sphere composed of a clump of tiny, roundish balls. In reality, they are much more than that. Those 40 cells contain all the potential to become a living, breathing human being. Many scientists believe that these cells also have the potential to cure a myriad of diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, and many others. The cells of the four day old human embryo can be programmed to become virtually any cell in the bo...
  • Embryonic Stem Cell Research
    2,840 words
    What exactly are stem cells? Stem cells are the mother of all cells in our bodies. They are cells that can develop into many different types of tissue, such as bone, muscle, or brain, and organs of the human body. When a fertilized egg first divides, totipotent stem cells are formed. These totipotent stem cells are cells that can turn into any type of tissue and form a complete organism. It is for this reason that stem cells have been the topic of many medical debates. In theory, these stem cell...
