Transcript of Against Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Against Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research by Kate Manzke What is embryonic stem cell research? Embryo- the miracle that created you
Pluripotent cell- what the embryo is made up of
Embryonic stem cell research- taking the embryo's pluripotent cells to create tissues Why is there a debate? Humanity vs. Morality
Save dying humans' lives?
Kill developing humans' lives?
Political funding My Argument We have no business in God's business Political Funding 1981- first embryonic stem cell isolated
1993- President Bill Clinton- interested and started funding
2001- President George W. Bush- banned funding
2009- President Barack Obama- continued funding
Currently- more research = more destroyed embryos :'( Ethical Beliefs Life begins at conception
We are each a miracle
"Thou shalt not kill" -Exodus 20:13
Richard M. Doerglinger- quote Opponent's Opinions Embryonic research might save lives.
Embryos can't think, feel, or have emotions, so they don't really have lives.
An aborted embryo is already destined to die. Conclusion Life and death are two beautiful things and they shouldn’t be sacrificed by human embryonic stem cell research! The end...of the presentation, not a life! Works Cited

"You Need to Enable Javascript." Pinterest. Web. 30 Nov. 2012. <http://pinterest.com/liosik>. iPS cells- artificially derived from non-pluripotent cell, typically adult somatic cell, and rewinding maturity process to become embryonic-like cell that can form any type of tissue.
Adult stem cells- found after development- multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues (not as many options as iPS cells).
