Another good one. What do you think? Should they have more backing? Is it right to use them? ect....

I think it is, we have something that may very well be the miracle cure for many deadly diseases and illnesses and it is limited. There are tons of sources that are sitting in donor banks that wil never be used that are thrown away which is a waste.

Stem cell research shouldnt be limited like it is. There's supposed to be a separation of church and state ... what a load of crap.

True but chruch and state are never really seraprate in this country. Reason being christains are a majority and if they dont aprove of something they pro test and the goverment gets afarid of loseing votes and doesnt do what they were going to do. Also that is alot of what this country trys to base there moral beleifs off of. For expamle in idaho i belive it was they wanted to teach both evoluation and a supreme being theory for why we are here. Altough it sounds like a reglion it is really just a teaching that there might be a possiblity aliens/a god/ or something along those lines that helped with the makeing of the humans. True there is no said god in this or none of his teachings. The christains protested and so they stoped teaching it. Which makes no since at all because it wasnt really regilious at all but it went against there god there fore they couldnt let them teach it.

Well i do agree with you there basou. Like i said befor i think they need to spend more time studying adult cells befor they move on to babies. It is true that babies have more possibly uses and are easy to program, but there is still a good use for adult ones and they can learn alot makeing baby ones more usefull and more right with the people. Reason being the more you know about the more you can do with them. Only reason they dont like adult ones is because there are already programed with a set job. So it is really hard for them, but i think research is easy and if they learn more about why this cell had this job and how it did it is job. It would make baby ones look like a pice of cake.

Like most controversies, the reason they are a controversy is because there is simply not enough evidence on either side.
I think it is wrong to limit it the way The US is doing it, and I also think it is wrong what some people in favor of Stem Cells are doing, and that is oversimplifying the subject to make people think that once we allow more research, there would be hundreds of new cures available in only a few years. Stem Cells are still a relatively new scientific field, and it takes time to make things right. It reminds me when the news started making people think that genetic cures would not take long to become a reality once the human genome would be decoded, that is wrong. Is like saying I am smart just because I own a huge library; sure the knowledge is in there, but there is one more thing I need to do: Start READING the good books!

no one said anything about the human gnome it is a step towards spine repair is it major thing. No one said hunderd of uses. Altought we dont know all it can be used for. What they are focusing on is spinal repair with the cells.

^ I said some people, and the human genome thing I wrote it because it reminds me of those people.

I'm in favor of Stem Cells but that does not mean we should oversimplify the subject like the media or the politicians do.

well that is true and my bad for the misunderstanding. The media and goverment like to simplifiy it because then they can just say its bad right after that and the people belive them. I mean they did it with eggs. People stoped eating them because they said they were bad, then they started again because they were good for you etc.. for awhile like that. I mean they use media to control the public is there reasoning.

I did not read your post bfor , yup the politics involved n this issue makes it stupid, I mean its easy fot you and me to understand all of this but those old armish bastartds in the senate or the house just dont get it. And the only thing I really hate Bush for was vetoing the stem cell bill so that e could get some conservatives on his side but his veto was overruled
I never noticed it bfor but your avatar is cool thepen

to discuss stem cells, you at least need a bit of research on them. Try a book by Campbell & Reece called Biology. it tell you your answer in there.
