Stem cell research
As we have started stem cells can be used to cure many diseases, this is due
to its ability to form other cells in the human body.
These cells that may have been affected or destroyed by diseases. Scientists
can extracts stem cells from embryos and then use them in replacing faulty
cells in those with diseases such as sickle cell anemia or diabetes.
There is a lot of debate around the use of stem cell research; many people
feel embryos should not be used for research as each one is human life.
Other believe that helping and curing people is the most important thing, and
as embryos cannot consent either way, and would be discarded anyway, it is
okay to use them as part of the research, Due to this debate in many countries
stem cell research is banned, in the UK it is allowed to a certain extent
