Stem Cells News -- ScienceDaily
In order to provide Fox News Web site users with a better understanding of the ethical and moral debate surrounding stem-cell research, the editors and research department at the Fox News Channel prepared the following primer. Opponents of research on embryonic cells, including many religious and anti-abortion groups, contend that embryos are human beings with the same rights — and thus entitled to the same protections against abuse — as anyone else. They believe life starts at the moment of conception, when a sperm fertilizes an egg, since a distinct organism has come into being. Thus the destruction of an embryo is the destruction of a human life. Anti-abortion groups also oppose research on stem cells derived from aborted fetuses. They reject the argument that since abortion is already legal and women will have them, that stem cells should be used from aborted fetuses because they would otherwise go to waste. Pope John Paul II has offered one argument designed to address just these sorts of questions when he wrote:.
Stem Cell Research: An Opinion
This extraordinary program focuses on providing high school students with exposure-rich, hands-on opportunities to engage deeply in work in the realm of STEM. Over the course of three Saturday sessions on May 8 , 15 and 22, students will receive comprehensive lab exposure to the work at both companies involving tissue engineering, stem cell research stem cells isolated from adult fat tissue , and preclinical evaluation of potential therapeutics. Students will learn the route that new medicines and treatments take to the clinic and the steps that ensure they are safe.
How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! Today, it could be, as they say, ripped from the headlines.
