Arguments Against Stem Cell Research Moral

Posted on

There are so many arguments against stem cell research moral, among those arguments which is against stem cell research moral we must know first what is the most debate surrounding stem cell research, if you have already read the other article I’ve already mention it more than once I think..) yes…the most debate and arguments against stem cell research moral is about embryonic stem cell which is using embryo in the newly age (4-6 days). The central question regarding the ethics of stem cell research are 2 point, first : do embryo have any moral status ? in othe words, are embryos entitles that deserve moral respect and are they owed some duty by moral agents due to their intrinsic properties or relationships with moral agents ?
Second point is : if embryo have some moral status, what kind or degree, of respect are they entitled to and what particular duties are they owed by moral agents ?

From so many moral and ethical debate we conclude that embryos have a modest but genuine moral status and should not be either created or destroyed for insubstantial reasons, embryos must be used or destroyed by persons who possess a sincere attitude of respect toward them and act in accordance with that attitude, and embryos can only be used or destroyed with the informed consent of the person, whose gametes sources.

Arguments Against Stem Cell Research Moral


Unfortunately the destruction of embryos in order to obtain primordial stem cells is ethically defensible because embryos have only a modest moral status and can be destroyed for substantial reasons. This is a great moral good; it is not mere caprice or frivolity that underlies the promise of stem cell research. While we are not soon going to see miraculous cures for terrible human diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, nor will we see fixes for spinal cord injuries that cause paralysis any time soon, nevertheless there are sufficient scientific reasons to believe that research with stem cells could someday result in significant benefits for suffering and injured persons. Therefore, it is ethically permissible for embryos, which have a modest moral status but not the status of persons, to be destroyed in the course of responsible stem cell research they are destroyed with a sincere attitude of respect, for there is a moral loss here, something morally valuable is being destroyed, and provided they are used only with the voluntary, informed consent of both gamete sources.
