Stem cells are unspecialized cells, that means they dont have a job in particular, this cells are not ordinary cells, this cells can be used to cure many diseases like Alzheimer, Parkinson or heart disease, the way it cures this type of sickness is by creating new cells that will substitute the harmed cells that have the disease.
People who are against stem cell research mainly look at the fact that is it taking the opportunity of another life that is being stopped from comming and becoming a new human, this can be counted as killing a baby to people who believe that life starts as soon as the sperm reaches the egg. This for christian is stopping nature from happening as well interfiering with life. "The far future can lead to knowledge on how to clone humans, it is hard to say weather this is true, but we have seen devasting consequences of other research programs, even with good intentions such as nuclear research" Nobel prize winne in Medicine or Physiology Mario R. Capecchi 2007.
There are people who believe that stem cells have a positive effect on sciene and medicine, and they are better than any other cell in the human body since it help cure people all around the world from deathful diseases. This could cure diseases easily just with the egg a woman dosent want and a sperm, that lately its been said that stem cells can also be found in a adult body. "Stem cells can divide themselves creating a bigger quantity of cells unlike other cells" says Dr. Nathan Wei. This cells are said to cure the diseases or sickness quicker and easier than any other medication. People are favour to this research since there are made to think the only think is causes is the cure to many diseases.
I think Stem Cells are not on the best interest of people since they are taking away what could be used or what is a baby and putting it on science, many countries do not permit stem cell research due to the materias needed to create the cells. "Side effects of stem cell transplant can be very serious or even life-threatening" Says the Canadian Cancer Society, This cells may cure many people but they also but peoples life in risk. In my opinion, this treatment should not be a option for anyone suffering from any sickness and stem cells should not be a way of medication.
