    Who has the Power to change life? The topic of stem cell research does not affect me so much at the moment. It might in the future, but for now it does not. I do believe that stem cell research should be used for cling organs that will be used for organ transplants. I do not however think that parents should place the doctors on pedestals just because these "mad scientists" supposedly have the power of God. The topic of heated debate does intrigue me, but not to the point as to where I would mak...

  • Drugs To Patients Without Their Knowledge
    661 words
    What Is the Price Knowledge I feel there is a definite need for knowledge in today's society, but there is also a definite point when it has gone too far.

It has also reached an extreme when the person becomes physically or mentally impaired after the experiments. I see this treatment as both immoral and unethical; there is no reason to harm a normally he...
