Continuing Embryonic Stem Cell Research There are many diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or spinal injuries which are incurable. For the patients who have that kind of disease, there is a possible medical treatment. Embryonic stem cell research is something that may lead to cure for those diseases. An embryonic stem cell is different from other cells, because it can develop into any other type of cell. It can develop to such as skins, bones, or muscles, so this treatment may possibly cure those diseases. To save people who are suffering from incurable diseases, scientists should keep studying this stem cell research. Not only to cure people who are suffering right now, but also we can stop incurable diseases being taken to our next generations. Out of many studies on medical treatments to cure incurable diseases, stem cell research may lead current medical technology to find the solutions for them. Once this research has succeeded, we can expect huge advancements in medical science. Many other treatments are being researched, but they cannot be compared to potential abilities of embryonic stem cell research. When embryonic stem cells can grow up to any type of cells, adult stem cells can only grow up into limited cells. But adult stem cells have less ethical problems than embryonic stem cells, which are treated as human lives, because adult stem cells are collected from grown-up’s organs. Nonetheless, we still need to research on embryonic stem cells, since they are only possibility to treat incurable diseases for now. A counterargument that most people oppose about is an ethical problem. Many people consider embryo as a human life, so they argue that this embryonic stem cell research is like killing a real human life. If an embryo is really a human life, maybe being discarded is more miserable than used as an object of a research. Fertilized embryos will be saved for future uses; otherwise they will be used for research purposes or abandoned. Being used for research and contribute to medical science and save millions of people may be more meaningful to an embryo, which has a possibility to develop to a life. Furthermore, embryos used in this research are reasonable to use as experimental objects. Before women fertilize embryos, they make a choice among saving embryos for next use, donating for research use, or discarding them. So embryos are approved to use for the research purpose by donators in advance when they donated embryos. There is another opposing point about embryos being destroyed during the research. This research is still on the stage of studying, so embryo destruction is unavoidable condition. This is another reason why scientists need to keep study on it and find a new method that prevents embryos being destroyed. Funding problem is also important to the stem cell research. Succeed in stem cell research may produce a lot of industrial and commercial incomes to a nation. Since this research requires a lot of money, it is hard to proceeds investigation without funding. There may be great profits to a nation, but in my opinion, this research should not be supported by federal funds. Stem cell research is a big issue throughout the world. If research succeeds, there is no worry about federal interferences. On the other hand, if research fails, the whole world is watching this failure. In this case, a…
In using stem cells there are several potential important uses. Human stem cells application can be used for cell-based therapies, and for testing new drugs. There are some differences between Human stem cells and embryonic stem cells. Human stem cells as their name suggest are derived from Adult stem cells are somatic, which means they are found in the body, not the embryo. These stem cells can only develop into the cell types of their original tissue.  While embryonic stem cells are derived…
not yet been used by Democrats to describe the capability of human embryonic stem cell research, but vice presidential candidate John Edwards came close in a speech made the day after the death of Christopher Reeve. Republicans have countered by implying one of the Ten Commandments “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13) in their condemnation of this controversial research. The debate now taking place about embryonic stem cell research is becoming one of the most divisive issues in society with both…
Should stem cell research continue to be funded?
Stem cells help in the creation of other cell types, which then can form into tissue and other body organs. Rather than surgery and medicine, these cells create a potentially new alternative method of restoring the human body to a healthy state. There are two forms of stem cells: embryonic and adult. Embryonic stem cells have no specialized functions and are pluripotent, which means they have the ability to develop into specialized…
TOKYO—The co-author of two breakthrough papers on making stem cells said Monday he had asked for the papers to be retracted, citing "crucial mistakes" in the research.
The decision is the latest and perhaps heaviest blow against the research, which was published in Nature in January and has been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks.
A spokeswoman for Nature said the journal was still investigating the matter and declined further comment.
Some scientists have said they have had trouble…
The Positive Relationship Between Science and Religion
Throughout history we can find many instances where religion was strongly opposed to scientific research. For example, the Catholic Church’s objection to Galileo’s defense of Copernicus’ heliocentric model where he offered his observations that he felt furthered the theory that the planets revolved around the Sun. At that time, the belief that the Holy Scriptures were perhaps inaccurate was one thing, but attempting…
How Science is used in the Organisation
In this section, I will be talking about the biotechnology in breeding and endocrinology which is all about the promotion of breeding to ensure that all the animals are being safely looked after. I will also research into the zoo’s nutrition and the legislations towards it and why it is important to Chester zoo. Furthermore, I will also review the animal’s behaviour and environmental enrichment which Is all about checking that the behaviour of the animals is…
moral vision for society. This belief is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching. In our society, human life is under direct attack from abortion and euthanasia. The value of human life is being threatened by cloning, embryonic stem cell research, and the use of the death penalty. The intentional targeting of civilians in war or terrorist attacks is always wrong. Catholic teaching also calls on us to work to avoid war. Nations must protect the right to life by finding increasingly…

Furthermore baptism brings benefits to the community as through baptism individuals renew their baptismal promises, for their continuing mission to live through Jesus Christ and maintain Christianity as a living religious tradition.
