Human embryonic Stem Cell Research Pros and Cons
See you again here good people….hope you can enjoy reading this article, actually..we have already discuss about human embryonic stem cell research pros and cons in the last article..but here I want to discuss in the point of the Human embryonic Stem Cell Research Pros and Cons, please underlined the word Human there, because as we has already know that human embryonic stem cell can be from animal and human isn’t it ? right now…we will see how it goes in the human human embryonic stem cell research pros and cons usage.
As what we has already learn before that human embryonic stem cells are thought by most scientists and researchers to hold potential cures for spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, hundreds of rare immune system, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, cancer and genetic disorders and much more. Actual cures are many years away, though, since research has not progressed to the point where even one cure has yet been generated by human embryonic stem cell research. Over 100 million Americans suffer from diseases that eventually may be treated more effectively or even cured with human embryonic stem cell therapy. Some researchers regard this as the greatest potential for the alleviation of human suffering since the advent of antibiotics. Many people which is pro lifer believe that the proper moral and religious course of action is to save existing life through human embryonic stem cell therapy.
Cons of Human embryonic Stem Cell Research
The most pro-life organizations believe that life begins at conception, and that destruction of this pre-born life is morally unacceptable regard the destruction of the blastocyst, which is a laboratory-fertilized human egg, to be the murder of human life. They believe that it is immoral to destroy a few-days-old human embryo, even to save or reduce suffering. 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 human embryonic stem cell therapy.
At every step of the human 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 human 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.
The Human embryonic stem cells have the ability to create new organs, tissues, and systems within the human body, the primary benefit of this research is the enormous amount of potential that it holds. With a little guidance from scientists, these stem cells have shown that they can become new organs, new blood vessels, and even. By culturing stem cells and them implanting them, recovery times could be halved for many serious injuries, illnesses, and diseases.
Some people see the creation of an embryo as the creation of life, so to terminate that life would equate to murder. The primary argument against this research is a moral one. This primarily originates from a point of view where life as we define it begins at conception, which would mean that any medical advancement from this research would be at best unethical.
Pros Of Human embryonic Stem Cell Research
Stem cell research can also potentially in the future help to treat medical problems. Individuals will get significant social benefits and the society will have economic gains. The stem cell research may be a treatment for many cancers because doctors will be able to remove the organs affected by cancer and then use the patient’s own stem cells to regrow their own organs. This can be done on the liver, pancreas and many other organs. Due to scientists reliably directing the differentiation of the human embryonic stem cells into specific cell types, they can be able to use the differentiated cells that result to treat certain diseases that require transplanting cells generated from human human embryonic stem cells. These diseases include traumatic spinal cord injury, diabetes, Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, vision and hearing loss as well as heart disease. The stem cells therapy can also save the existing life.
The Human human embryonic stem cells are able to provide researchers with a greater advantage as compared to using adult stem cells because the human embryonic cells are easier to isolate, identify and can be purified easily. Growing these stem cells is simpler as compared to the adult stem cells. Since the human embryonic cells used for research are usually harvested five to seven days after conception. The argument is that at this stage, the embryo cannot be assigned a personal identity because it is not developed enough. This is because it is just a mass of cells. Using the human embryonic stem cells also guarantees that the cells are free of genetic diseases unlike the adult cells which may have some genetic diseases and will therefore not be able to form a reliable cure.
