Ethically Informative Essay: The Stem Cell Debate

1676 Words 7 Pages
Imagine a world where people change God’s intentions. Imagine people picking at what God created and wanted for humanity. Science is changing His intentions. People are messing with humanity and the natural occurrences that happen all of the time. Scientists are using stem cells to mess with the embryos they come from and diseases common all around the world. This topic is so popular people feel that “a fixation on it alone has come at the cost of many other important issues being overlooked or, at the very least, under-examined” (Lysaght, Tamra, and Alastair V. Campbell 251). Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can be transformed into any type of cell (Rebecca). Scientists take these cells to make new cells, tissues, and organs to implant into humans. …show more content…
Scientists brag about all the benefits these stem cells have, yet they are not even sure the potential benefits will work or help people. People hardly even know what stem cells are and what their risks are because when being informed on the topic scientists seem to, only, show the good but hide the bad (“The Stem Cell Debates” 29). Many of the surveys taken on the opinion on if stem cell research is okay or not was worded in ways that ignored the ethical and moral issues and concerns that could arise (“The Stem Cell Debates” 29). Scientists say there are many sources these stem cells can come from (Rebecca), but they aren’t sure if they are safe to implant into humans (Siegel). They are not helping save embryos because they are ruling out any of those sources to be used. Scientists argue that more research is needed to be done to test what source is safer, but some people are not informed that these experimental procedures could be unsafe or ineffective. Stem cells are causing a lot of worry and arguments in many people in different countries and different religions. Stem cell research is not what advance the medical field
