Embryonic stem cell research is a highly debated and sensitive topic. Such good could come from researching this technology since so many people can benefit from it. Few topics in science and religion have been as hotly contested in recent years as stem cell research, largely because it involves the fate of, disposition of, and research on the human embryo. I recently had a chance to read an essay regarding embryonic stem research and its pros and cons. The following paragraphs will provide a clear understanding, of my point of view after reading this essay and how the author used the principles of an argument. Embryonic stem cell research have more benefits that have set to be research due to the great debate of life or death and is it ethical.

People are missed informed about stem cell research, when people typically go from word a mouth and not do their own research, they tend to draw their conclusion on the subject. People are unsure of how the ideal of harvesting stem cells are done. Those missed informed lead their think habits, that all stem cell research is based from embryonic stem cell. In fact, there is over 220 types of cells that can be used in medicine. Some aliments which can possibly be treated is cancer, Parkinsonís, genetic diseases, spinal cord injuries, and a host of others.

Stem cells are the ones which can develop into any type of a body cell including the cells of blood, liver, brain, muscles, and many more. They are found in adult bone marrow, embryos, fetuses, and blood from the umbilical cord. Stem cell research is the latest advancement in biotechnology which shows how an organism develops from a single cell and how healthy cells replace damaged cells in adult organisms. This technique has lead scientists to research about the possibility of cell-based therapies to treat disease. Such good can come from

Because stem cells have the capacity to regenerate, they have ushered in the era of "regenerative medicine," signaling that, in theory, these cells can be used to regenerate human tissues and cells, and ultimately increase quality of life and the human life span. Embryonic stem cells are the progenitor cells for the human body and at their earliest stage (the blastocyst stage) they are completely undifferentiated and can give rise to any cell type in the human body (totipotent, pluripotent, and multipotent are all terms that have been used to describe this phenomenon). At this stage the cells have not yet received their order as to what they will be used for.

From a religious aspect, it should also be stressed that even though a person may belong to a particular faith, they may not associate their own views with that of their religion as a whole. It is also important to note that some humanists and philosophers have similarly voiced objections to embryonic stem cell research from a non-religious basis, calling for the need for the need for better guidance surrounding the ethical permissibility of such technology; thus emphasizing that opposition to the technology need not be driven by association with a particular faith.
With new knowledge comes a new concern about the creative misuse of this information. There are growing fears that stems cells would be used not only to clone new organs but could be used to clone whole new preferred populations. Some are concerned about the unintended consequences of new cancers or illnesses from retroviruses. Others argue that we should not mess with human life, and we should not be trying to play God. Research and medical organizations could allay the fears of the public by issuing policy statements similar to the one published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and by closely regulating the use of stem cell lines.

The potential social and economic benefits of the many that could be saved far outweigh the detriments of loss of life or limited funding. Adult and umbilical cells are emerging as the more advantageous sources with the fewest ethical controversies. Umbilical cells would be even more acceptable if genetic matches could be determined before an ovum is fertilized and an embryo
