The embryos used do not make it to term due to health issues or the parent’s decide to abort. People against stem cell research do not research and therefore present poor arguments, such as stem cell researchers kill the embryos for the…

    Embryonic stem cells have the ability to multiply and replace diseased cells. They can be changed to have properties of different cells. However, these embryos have the potential to grow into human beings, and by extracting them for their stem cells, scientists destroy the embryo. Scientist’s ultimate goal may be to help people, but hundreds of embryos are destroyed on the way to finding these cures. Although embryonic stem cell research has been shown to have great medical potential, there…
