Diseases, genetic disorders, prolife activists and anti-abortion groups; legal and political reformists are all still given options to show that the progresses of biological medicine merit this argument itself, “What is the problem with stem cell research?” As a people, we should not be guilty of misguided reasoning and neither should we become people that are immoral, mean, or insensitive.
According to Dr. Kelly Hollowell, The Success and Promise of Adult Stem Cell Research – the current realities of adult stem cell research include therapies for: “corneal restoration, brain tumors, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, liver disease, leukemia, lupus, arthritis, and heart disease.
This shows that stem cell research has led to possibly, the best option for patients with the above listed problems. These remote problems should simply be an appeal to the accomplishment of such an argument in both the political and legal dimensions when dealing with stem cell research. Nothing is coincidence and politically, the dimensions of legal and pseudo-political objections, are limited to the results of chance and an actual result from stem cell research itself.
Ignoring the obvious objections and arguments to what society calls “cloning” and the “right to life” of embryonic stem cells, society has readily accepted, whether through ignorance or indifference, the use of adult stem cell research and the use of placentas, umbilical cord blood, bone marrow/organ donors, and possibly even fat cells as an alternative to the use of embryonic stem cells.
But still, there are little to no facts supporting either position because there is still no common consensus among pro or con “ralliers”, the law, and genetics about a problem with stem cell research itself, only in the method and ethics of obtaining the stem cells themselves.
While the argument can and has been made on the “right to life” of embryos and fetuses from which undifferentiated stem cells derive, the basic argument, and unanswered question, underlying that argument continues to exist, “When does life begin?”
