potential to develop into any kind of cell found in the human body. Embryonic Types Adult found in various locations in the adult human body
function is to be held on reserve
specialize in tissue origin
extremely rare
difficult to isolate found in the body
divide and reproduce
unspecialized Specialization embryonic stem cells
many of the 210 Researchers Discovered Mankind needs stem cell research to discover the unknowns of stem cells; this research has great potential through medical promise and is not unethical, like some say limited supply of organs for transplants
alternative for treating failing organs (“Stem Cells”) (“Stem Cells”) (“Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions”) (Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research) (“Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions”) Alternative treatment Refutation #1 used in treating leukemia
well established and accepted method of treatment Hematopoietic stem cells (“Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions”) isolated from the blood or bone marrow
can:
renew itself
specialize into different cells
mobilize out of the bone marrow into circulating blood hematopoietic stem cells (“Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions”) stem cells especially human embryonic stem cells
1)specialize stem cells into cells required
2)deliver stem cells to tissue
3) prevent rejection of stem cells by recipient Under Development Opposition Refutation #2 Richard Doeflinger
official with the National Conference of Catholic Bishops
sacrifice one class for another? ("Stem Cells") human life starts at fertilization
small embroyos are genetically unique people
treat with same morals What Some Believe ("Stem Cells") Eve Herold
Stem Cell Wars: Inside Stories from the Frontlines
Health or good conscience?
Life of good health depended on the sacrifice of others? ("Introduction to Human Embryo Experimentation: At Issue") Sacrifice for others? Left over from other facilities
Recycled by stem cell researchers Destruction? ("Stem Cells") In 1998, James Thomson, at the University of Wisconsin, isolated and grew the first human embryonic stem cells. should they be treated with moral status?
"sacrificing real human beings for microscopic clumps of cells." Writer David Holcberg new innovative process to produce stem cells
parthenotes?
egg that becomes an embryo without fertilization
generates stem cells
cannot go beyond early embryonic stage because of their genetic programming Parthenotes Advancement Towards a Better Future By: Sydney Ellis Stem Cells: ("Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions") ("Stem Cells") Pluripotent
any cell
Unipotent
usually adult stem cells
one line ("Stem Cells: Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions") The central question in the debate is when human life actually begins, and the various answers cause many people to consider issues about life and death, science and religion. Conclusion Stem cells:
hold great potential
endless medical possibilities
recycled from other facilities
new ways of obtaining them
discoveries can lead to cures and treatments. (“Introduction to Human Embryo Experimentation: At Issue”) ("Preface to 'Is Genetic Engineering Ethical?'")
