Support of Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Embryonic stem cell is one of the most controversial, widely discussed medical issues in the United States today. The medical use of stem cell raises difficult moral and political questions. To understand about embryonic stem cell. I thought we should discuss what embryonic stem cells are. According to Scientific American; June 2004, embryonic stem are derived from the portion of a very early stage embryo that would eventually give rise to an entire body. Because embryonic stem cells originate in this primordial stage, or having existed from the beginning. They retain the pluripotent the ability to form any cell type in the body. To cell line create an embryonic stem cell, scientist remove the inner cell mass from a blastocyst created in the laboratory, usually left over from an attempt at in-vitro fertilization. The inner cell mass or (ICM) is placed on a plate containing feeder cells, to which it soon attaches. In a few days, new cells grow out the inner cell mass and form colonies. These are formally called embryonic stem cells only if they met two criteria: they display markers known to characterize ES Cells and undergo several generations of cell division, or passages, demonstrating that they constitute a stable, or immortalized.

Benefits of Embryonic Stem Cell
There are people who agree that there are benefits to embryonic stem cell research. Scientists believe that embryonic stem cells are more versatile. Although some may argue that embryonic stem cell research is unethical, many of the embryos are willingly donated. According to the associated content.com article # 72918, stem cell research have amazing medical potential; by regenerating cells and organs, it has the ability to cure disease that previously might have been incurable. Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, stroke, heart disease and diabetes can eventually be treated with stem cell. Currently stem cells have proved effective against sickle cell anemia. The use of the more versatile embryonic stem cells will speed up the process significantly because embryonic can be more easily cultivated not to mention that it can mature in to more specialized cells that adult stem cells. In addition to potential treatments, stem cells can also be used for drug testing. Drug testing of stem cells is more accurate than animal testing. Although there is no guarantee that stem cell can be delivered on all of its promises, the potential is simply too grand to avoid.

Ethical Issues with Embryonic Stem Cell.
Some urologist have mixed feelings over stem cell research. According to urology time; 10/1/2005, Vol. 33. Urology Times spoke with urologist from across the United States about their personal and professional perceptions of stem cell research. Is it viable and ethical? Should the government fund the research or should the funding be left to the private sectors? Louis Galdieri, MD, of West Orange, NJ stated that stem cell research is something I think is promising. The issue with embryos is, of course, a sticky one, depending on where you stand. Ethically and logically, it’s difficult. Louis Galdieri, stated that “he is catholic, so he would tend not to want to use embryonic stem cells if we don’t need to” He continued. If there is an alternate source that would give us the same potential, I would want to do that instead. Lyman R. Brothers MD, of Steamboat Springs, CO, also say his personal belief creates an internal conflict when the stem cell issue arises. “I’m a pro-life person. So I’m torn between ending an embryonic life for stem cell research, but in the same breath, I am also a clinician, and a operative surgeon, and believe we must purse stem cell research to combat the diseases that are beating us”. “If we can do stem cell research, we can cure diabetes and so many other things.

Conclusion
Choosing to support or oppose embryonic cell research is a personal choice. It appears to me that the ethical choice is why many people will either support or oppose embryonic stem cell research. Embryonic cell has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the advantages is that it can possibly cure diseases such as diabetes and other diseases, the disadvantage are the cost of the embryonic stem research. It’s very expensive to finance stem cell research. I would support stem cell research because of the many different benefits that embryonic stem cell research can have on people. The possibility of curing disease that was deemed to be incurable is remarkable. For me the advantages just outweigh the disadvantages. In my opinion embryonic stem cell research will help many people in the near future
