Major mine field and Controversies:
Intellectual products from stem cells research used as a money spinner
Stem cells acts like drugs and can be sold like one
ESCs from embryos are unethical to many based on moral and religious grounds.
Cloning humans and destroying embryos are unethical
Many people associate stem cells with destroying embryos and cloning humans when
there are actually thousands of other stem cell methods
Stem cells research is shrouded in clouds of varying viewpoints and ethical stands.
These must be approached head-on. The main problems surround that of research on
human embryonic stem cells. As science and technology advances, these ethical issues
may be bypassed one day. The ends of embryonic stem cells research are good. The
problems are the means. Is it alright to harvest ESS from donated eggs? Is an embryo
a person or does it has a life? We have a duty not to kill..
