  • Stem Cell Controversy

    Since the discovery of stem cell research, it has caused quite a controversy for many people. It has many different aspects that are sometimes not made known to people. Society often times feel very strongly about their own opinions on the topic and are not always willing to listen to other views or learn anything new. Many think the process isn’t ethical but some believe that the research taking place is necessary for the betterment of medicine. Today there are many different views and outlooks on stem cell research. However, some people are forming opinions based on limited information and not on the vast information available about the matter. There is a lot of false information in existence that people think is true and base their opinions…

  • Stem Cells Controversy

    Since the discovery of stem cells in 1978, (Murnaghan) the controversy circulating around these cells has been immense. First off, let us define stem cells; stem cells in Merriam Webster dictionary are defined as “a simple cell in the body that is able to develop into any one of various kinds of cells (such as blood cells, skin cells, etc.)” (Merriam-Webster). Furthermore, there are two types of stem cells, embryonic and somatic, and between these two types of stem cells is where the real…

  • The Controversy Of Embryonic Stem Cells

    Stem cell research has caused tremendous controversy over the latest years. Because embryonic stem cells are pluripotent and undifferentiated, they have the potential to become any cell in the adult body and are present in all living organisms. Tissue (adult) stem cells are taken from specific parts of the body, but can only give rise to their tissue of origin. These tissue cells are used naturally by the body to replace damaged cells. Research into both of these types of cells seems very…

  • Embryonic Stem Cell Controversy

    American scientists reported that they had succeeded in isolating and culturing stem cells collected from human embryos and fetuses as stated in the article titled “The Intersection of Law and Medicine: The Case for Providing Federal Funding for Embryonic Stem Cell Research”. A stem cell is defined by the medical world as an undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and from which certain other kinds of cell…

  • The Controversy Of Stem Cell Research

    could all be possible because of stem cell research. The incredible properties of stem cells allow for medical advancements. These cells have the ability of self-renewal; this unique cell can divide and make perfect copies of themselves. These copies can then develop into other, more specialized cells in a process that is known as differentiation. With differentiation, cells can divide to make exact daughter cells which can then repair tissue, etc., as stem cells are what allow mammals to grow…

  • The Controversy Over The Use Of Stem Cells

    Thousands of people are treated with stem cells every year in the United States. Stem cells are used in many different ways to better the world and save lives. People debate whether or not it is ethically okay to use stem cells for research. The government is funding this research, so the benefits most likely outweigh the moral issues. There are a few unique properties that all stem cells share. One unique property is that stem cells are unspecialized. They do not have tissue-specific structures…

  • Controversy Concerning Stem Cell Research In The Medical Field

    Stem cells are non specialized cells in your body that have the potential to create more specific types of cells such as blood, brain, tissue or muscle. Because of their unique traits, stem cells have improved millions of lives all over the world. Over the past couple of years, stem cell research has been getting a lot of heat because of a cloud of controversy surrounding it. As a result, the US government (among multiple other countries) deny funding for it and only the wealthy private labs are…

  • Stem Cell Controversy: The Roe V. Wade Court Case

    was no proof of rape. (The Stem Cell Controversy: Debating the issues). In 1970 Norma McCorvey’s lawyers took her case back to court. They took the name of Jane Roe to keep her identity a secret. Their opponents filed under the name of Henry Wade in order to keep the laws the same and stop the legalization of abortion.

  • Stem Cell Research Rhetoric

    Stem cells have always been a “hot button issue” in America ever since 1998 when President Bill Clinton requested a National Advisory Commission to study the topic of stem cell research. Being that stem cells are a relatively new discovery and research has been heavily restricted, many people know little about them. Without prior background knowledge, it becomes easy for us to be manipulated in an argument. Logos is one of the trickiest forms of rhetoric used, because it employs reason and logic…

  • Stem Cell Research: Ethical And Scientific Community

    Stem Cells One of the biggest ethical and scientific debates in the scientific communities involves Stem Cell research. Stem cells are cells with the ability to develop into different types of cells in the body. They can serve as a type of internal repair system for the body. They are distinguished from other cells because they are unspecialized and are capable of renewing themselves through cell division. Also, under physiologic or experimental conditions they can be induced to become tissue…
