Banning embryonic stem cell research would give life a chance to happen since frozen embryos in labs could be implanted into a woman's uterus and become a child at any time. In addition, there are health risks involved with stem cells since instead of curing diseases, stem cell transplants can pass viruses or other agents to patients and thus, cause even more diseases. Furthermore, scientists are cloning embryos in order to overcome tissue rejection during cell transplants and this will inevitably lead to human cloning, which is both dangerous and morally wrong. There is no justifiable reason to continue researching embryonic stem cells since it is immoral, unethical, dangerous, and very
The status of the human embryo and human embryonic stem cell research is a controversial issue as, with the present state of technology, the creation of a human embryonic stem cell line requires the destruction of a human embryo. Stem cell debates have motivated and reinvigorated the pro-life movement, whose members are concerned with the rights and status of the embryo as an early-aged human life. They can believe that embryonic stem cell research instrumentalizes and violates the sanctity of life and some also view it as tantamount to murder.  The fundamental assertion of those who oppose embryonic stem cell research is the belief that human life is inviolable, combined with the belief that human life begins when a sperm cell fertilizes an egg cell to form a single cell. A portion of stem cell researchers use embryos that were created but not used in in vitro fertility treatments to derive new stem cell lines.
response to EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH: THE BLOOD TRAIL OF PROGRESS Paul A. Ibbetson a writer for The Conservative Crusader, defends and also attempts to clarify the typical conservative stance on stem cells in his article “Embryonic Stem Cell Research: the Blood Trail of Progress”. Ibbetson fails to justify his point that non-embryonic stem cell research is viable while embryonic stem cell research is immoral due to a number of errors in his delivery. The foremost among these is the logical fallacy of appeal to consequences; Ibbetson makes a half-hearted attempt to compare Hitler’s policy on genocide akin to Obama’s position on stem cell research, yet never truly explains the explanation. Another logical fallacy presented towards the
Though a catholic would disagree: in my opinion embryonic stem cell research should be carried out based on the fact it could possibly lead to to treatmemt of serious diseases. Religiously Catholics consider an embryo alive and a human being from the time of conception. The embryo has to be killed once the stem cells are taken. Therefore, Catholics look upon embryonic stem cell research as murder. However most of the embryos that are used are left over from
Abortion: Pro-Life, Pro-Choice and In-Between Often in life, people are faced with trying circumstances that force them to take a moral stance on a controversial matter. The decision to continue or terminate a pregnancy is a divisive subject in terms of ethics, politics and science. Abortion has a lengthy timeline that predates reliable recorded history. Before modern medical advances, an abortion was a brutal and formidable process that was often lethal to women seeking the procedure. With increased technology and medical marvels, legitimate abortions, strictly as a procedure, have made breakthrough advances in regard to the safety and concern of the pregnant woman.
Not only at is Bolt trying to slam the ethicists but it is the last push for his arguments to really stand out by slamming them “after all, even in the world… an ethicists is” this point is thrown into the works with the sense that whatever the ethicists have stated, it would be completely rejected by the audience after all the torturous and antagonising events that have been reported by Bolt and the plain and simple fact that the audience has hopefully been swayed into Bolt’s contention. Although it is known that Bolt has a very strong opinion on the topic of abortion and feels that it is completely and utterly wrong to abort a baby at both stages before and after birth. Bolt has been able to not only acknowledge an exception but to attempt to convince the audience through his antagonising and torturous
"At each stage - kidney, heart, liver and so forth - ethical considerations have been considered, especially with the heart, which was a major, major problem for many people and scientists. "And the brain, because of its uniqueness poses a major, major ethical issue as far as the public and even the profession is concerned." 'Scientifically misleading' The arguments against head and brain transplants were outlined by Dr Stephen Rose, director of brain and behavioural research at the Open University. He said: "This is medical technology run completely mad and out of all proportion to what's needed. "It's entirely misleading to suggest that a head transplant or a brain transplant is actually really still connected in anything except in terms of blood stream to the body to which it has been transplanted.
One of the very many issues with legalizing euthanasia is the potential for it to be abuse if passed. For example if a clinically depressed person were to ask there doctor to preform euthanasia on them, that doctor could charge that person thousands of dollars for the operation and assist someone with their suicide even though they are not mentally stable. This doctor could indeed exploit people who aren’t mentally stable and perform thousands of procedures on these people. And clinical depression can be cured so the possibility of having people being killed because they weren’t in the right state of mind would be totally detrimental to the entire criminal code and Canadian
In this interview I learned what embryonic stem cells are, where do they come from, what are they used for, and why they mainly excite scientists versus adult stem cells. I also asked whether my uncle was in favor or opposed embryonic stem cell research. According to my uncle, “I support embryonic stem cell research because it has got so much promise. Damaged tissues cause so many diseases. Cells that can
Emotional appeals play a huge rule in the abortion debate, it is a main tactic used by those who are “pro-life”, where as reasoned arguments are used more by those who are “pro-choice”. Many pro-life advocates believe that abortion is killing a human being because unborn babies are human beings from the moment of conception (procon), they believe that the fetus feels pain during the abortion procedure, and abortion causes major risks to woman physically and mentally. Pro-choice advocates believe that personhood does not begin till the baby is born (procon), they believe that the fetus is
