r u for it or against it?? personally iam for it and i think every one should be for it too i know some ppl think is murder but what the hell is not like they make those emroys for the purpose of stem cell research scientist take the ones who are gonna be discarted from the fertility clinic anyways or they use the ones that have been recovered from abortion so y not use them for a greater cause ?? i think it makes us a murder not treating a little girl die of leukimia knowing there is a cure for it ! so there for i stronlyyyy for stem cell research and those who are against it they just dont listen to both side of the story or they are just trying to find somthing to bitch about!

here is the site that tells u all about stem cell research

I'm against abortion in most cases, but I could easily recognize embryonic stem cell research as having the potential to do good, recent stem cell research determined [with a little luck] which stem cells develop a certain type of cancer [I think leukemia] that can occur in children.

well there are two kinds of stem cell technology, there is nothing wrong with the use of adult stem cells but what i'm against is the use of embryonic stem cells.

I'm for it as well, but I don't know much about it, I only read a few things regrading it. Though it actually sounds like a good thing, because it may save many lives in the near future.

North America is doing research on this, but in North America they still think it's unstable and not ready yet to be used on people, so they don't actually "cure" any one with this new found tech.

But stem cell is actually being used in China to heal/help some people; its not very effective though. >_<

this isn't a problem now, we can just use adult skin, lol. But even embryos are ok because if you're gonna kill them anyways, whats the difference, its not like it feels pain, sadness, unhappiness, or, gasp, any difference at all

When I first heard it, the idea was actually pretty good in my opinion. But the thought of it taken from embryos knda got me. I'm against abortion in most cases but IF you do abortion you might as well do some good to the world. This could help cure millions of people so technically you haven't really lost a life.

As long as people don't start getting pregnant for the embryonic stem cells, I 'm fine with it.

I am quite for Stem Cell Research, last semester I wrote a paper over it along with my group as a final project. After reviewing all the facts, I really like the idea as a whole. Recent research is going on that would replace embryotic stem cells with a cluster of blastocysts that resemble an embryotic stem cell and have the same pluripotent ability to become any cell in the body. Since embryonic stem cells are the main problem that most people have a problem with, this method should fix that problem. Ah well, I know I rambled a bit, but if anyone cares to read up a bit on it, I have my group's paper with me, though I can't seem to find how to post it >.>

hmmm... it's still a touchy subject...

I'm all for it since it's been mentioned before that you can get adult stem cells from other places... and you can collect them from umbilical cords from newborn babies too... unfortunately, (I think) that those umbilical and adult stem cells from bone marrow only make certain kinds of cells, and the embryonic stem cells are a better bet to have to make cells.

I say that the benefits outweigh the cons of using embryonic stem cells. The only problem is that the subject's so touchy that people won't give money to the development and research since it's such an ethical issue and isn't really proven to work 100%

Wats stem cell reseach. is it when doctor use fetuses as cure of sumthing
Posted 1/30/08
depends on where they're getting those pluripotent cells. you can get them from bone marrow and you can get them from embryos. where they're taken from is what my answer depends on...

agree...
adults is ok but using the embryonic stem cell is like ended a life...well first at all this is just a research and there is no guarantee for curing cancer, diabetes,ect...yet. and ppl[government?] waisted so much money on the research while they can use it for something else....and also because of one person's life many stem cells are being use to cure their diseases....well at least i know i dont want be cure while knowing those embryotic stem cells can be given a chance to develop, to be born, to see the light but cannot bc of human selfishness...

I am for it regardless of embryonic or not. I do not view using a discarded fetus for research as killing, more so as salvaging for a potentially greater good. The way i see it, it is extremely valuable technology with the potential it has ethic opposition as weak as this shouldn't interfere with it.

ive heard of this before the stem cell research. i think that this is actually a good thing to do because it can actually help someone.
