Pros & Cons of Embryonic Stem Cell Research – US Liberal …

Posted: August 23, 2014 at 9:58 am

Embryonic stem cells are thought by most scientists and researchers to hold potential cures for spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, hundreds of rare immune system and genetic disorders and much more.

Scientists see almost infinite value in the use of embryonic stem cell research to understand human development and the growth and treatment of dieases.

Actual cures are many years away, though, since research has not progressed to the point where even one cure has yet been generated by embryonic stem cell research.

Over 100 million Americans suffer from diseases that eventually may be treated more effectively or even cured with embryonic stem cell therapy. Some researchers regard this as the greatest potential for the alleviation of human suffering since the advent of antibiotics.

Many pro-lifers believe that the proper moral and religious course of action is to save existing life through embryonic stem cell therapy.

Cons

Some staunch pro-lifers and most pro-life organizations regard the destruction of the blastocyst, which is a laboratory-fertilized human egg, to be the murder of human life. They believe that life begins at conception, and that destruction of this pre-born life is morally unacceptable.

They believe that it is immoral to destroy a few-days-old human embryo, even to save or reduce suffering in existing human life.

Many also believe that insufficient attention been given to explore the potential of adult stem cells, which have already been used to successfully cure many diseases. They also argue that too little attention has been paid to the potential of umbilical cord blood for stem cell research. They also point out that no cures have yet been produced by embryonic stem cell therapy.

At every step of the embryonic stem cell therapy process, decisions are made by scientists, researchers, medical professionals and women who donate eggs...decisions that are fraught with serious ethical and moral implications. Those against embryonic stem cell research argue that funding should be used to greatly expand adult stem research, to circumvent the many moral issues involving the use of human embryos.

In recent years, Kumba, a 13-year-old rottweiler mix, and beloved pet, had been living a life in pain. "Kumba had a lot of problems with his back legs; both his hips and his knees were affected by really severe arthritis and he was having a hard time getting up and down and his quality of life was really being affected," said Dr. Cristina Miliaresis, who is a veterinarian at Surf Paws Veterinary Hospital in Hawaii Kai. Reports show it's a painful problem affecting up to 40 percent of the 164 million cats and dogs in the United States. "When we heard about the therapy, it was an option for us and for Kumba to live a better quality of life," said Kumbas owner Rumi Hospedar. In June, veterinarians took fat tissue from Kumba's shoulder, separated the stem cells, then injected it back into his ailing joints. In the past, veterinarians had to send tissue to the mainland, but a company called MediVet provided the equipment to do it all in clinic. "He came back today so we could check up on him and see how he's doing," said Dr. Miliaresis. She said most of their pet patients are more than 10 years and no longer candidates for orthopedic procedures. So for the family, they couldn't be happier knowing Kumba has another chance at being the kind of dog, they know, he wants to be. "Kumbas doing much better he's spends a lot more time moving around. He's much more active and my biggest vision of Kumba is him galloping around like a horse because when he's happy he's galloping around the back yard with almost like a smile on his face," said Hospedar.
