Stem cell research uses embryonic cells to build new organs and can be used in all sorts of ways to help people with conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's Diseases, among many others. There are big differences in beliefs about whether or not stem cell research is immoral or not. Some people believe that since embryonic cells have a "potential" to develop into a viable fetus that using these cells for research would be destroying a life. Others believe that since stem cell research stands to help many people with debilitating disease that it will help to save lives. Which do YOU believe, and WHY?

This is indeed a tricky moral issue. My take on this is that it's OK. Why? Because anything that can help people and put a stop to these as you say, debilitating diseases must be a good way to go.

Why not use the stem cells from cord blood? If it was required for everyone to save the cord blood, you wouldn't need to harvest embryonic stem cells. It is cheaper too. I am for that only.
