Depend on what they're doing, if it's for reasons like, finding a cure, then I support it wholeheartly, but like punk, I'm not too keen on using it for cloning.

And you know what pisses me off stem cells can be extracted without hurting the baby and it is actually beneficial to the baby also, and in oortion clinics around this country stem cells are thrown away that can be used to save millions of people, I mean if you are going to kill the baby might as well use it right

I don't see embryos as babies really.

i think we should just use the stem cells of hell all the embryos aborted these days.

shit..that would be a stockpile real.

i am pro-stem cell.

the whole talk about the umbilical stem cells.

by far that is a great middle ground really.

but too scant of options for that.

but really embryonic stem cells contain...limitless possibilities...the ability to become any kind of cell that you need it to be...pretty awesome.

yes and no

if stem cells could help develop cure for AIDS and cancer?...then hellz yes

but definately not for cloning. it just seems wrong to me, as if the clone werent a real person


do you even understand cloning?

because from what i have just read makes me doubt it.


oh?
stem cells can regenerated into any part of the human body: heart, nerves, you name it
this is called cloning
a-duurrrrr

I agree. Down with abortion but since that isnt going anywhere let us at least make it useful. The problem is though if a market comes from abortion clinics we will never be rid of them. It has nothing to do with Church and state seperation and I am for research but people. Think about it. America is all about God. The reason Church and State seperation was made was so Christians could worship their God without having Catholics forcing catholocism on them. You guys totally turned it around but it is not because the state and Church are not to touch each other. Protesting is allowed so all of you can shut up. You protest against not having same sex marriage. Christians protest this. Get over it.

Edit: i agree PF the disease curing is good but cloning is definitely bad

I think that stem cell research should be completely funded. If you don't agree then there is a half way compromise point. There is a lot of valuable information in the stem cells that are thrown out. For example; umbilical cords have a lot of stem cells and they are just thrown out. Whatever your opinion may be there is always a compromise.

do the stem cell research because it has the potential to help millions of people. Im totally against abortion but if your gonna kill it it should be used in the most useful manner possibly

A. If you read my first post you would see that I said I support stem cell research, but only if the cells come from umbilical cord blood (umbilical cords from recently born healthy babies) or adult stem cells.
B. I am against abortion.

Because if the mother and father are going to take the risk of having sex knowing a child is possible no matter how small of a chance there is and they decide to run away from that responisbility then thats wrong its not fair to the child. Now if a woman was raped then i could understand having an abortion.

I'm not reading this whole thing so I dont know if this has been said or not, nor am I coming back to read comments about my post, but I just wanted to give a little information just incase it wasn't already told.

I do not approve stem cell research for anything besides life-saving advances. Like the cure for cancer of AIDs or Parkinsons. Anyway, I totally aprove of stem cell research because of one main reason that most people do not know.

Stems cells obviously usually come from "babies" if you want to call them that in thier early developement. Most people that are against stem cell research because it kills life. Now, before scientists use the stem cells the must get premission from the family of the "baby", so to the family it must be okay. Also, if the family says no or if the embryo/sperm arent even going to be used, do you know what happens to it? Its thrown out, therefore it dies anyway. So, they're only A. Using things that would die anyway B. Getting consent and C. Trying to save countless lives.

Therefore I aprove of it. However, there can be countless debates/arguments against it, but thats just my opinion. I MIGHT come back to this topic, but I doubt it. =P Hope I was able to spread some insight.

Cord Blood stem cells get around the whole debate. They can be saved directly after birth and cause no loss of "life". I put that in quotations because in my personal opinion I have no problem harvesting these cells from an early stage embryo, in my opinion that is not a living creature...only the potential to be living. Some people aren't ok with this, everyone has the right they're opinion. But I think that in the name of curing diseases and saving countless lives, the sacrifice is worth it.

people who think that stem cells are evil=bad
