Stem Cells.

Do we need Stem Cells?

There are better ways to get Stem Cells other than useing Embryos. Scientists found that great amounts of Stem Cells come from a Embilical cord of a Babey after it's born, plus they can be found inside bones as well.

Does Stem Cell research sound like a good thing for all humanity, by useing Stem Cells to repair or remake muscle tissues and musscles, heal burns, cuts etc faster more effectively and without leaving scars.
Meaning you have sergury or get hurt badly you wont have scars left over.
Plus people with mental disabilities could be helped with Stem Cells, wich would make or further develope their brain.
Stem Cells could also be used to cure all forms of Diabedis, and cure certain diseases.

What do you others think about this?

Stem cells kick ass! I know they can get a ton of stem cells from an umbilical cord and they should do that with each damn cord they clip. Get the stem cells any way you can. If it comes down to artificially fertilizing an egg in a lab to get a few cells, do it! Obviously humanity has a great deal to benefit from the research. Faith doesn't cure diseases!

I support stem cell reasearch. I think it can unlock medical cures that have evaded us for years.

I too support it.
Isn't that a shock.
I agree with people on something.

Anybody that think life starts at Fertilzation is reading too far into it. (it has to look like a human to be considered one)

I don't think it's an actual Human Life until it forms into a Fetus

i don't think the question is do you support stem cells. its more like, do you support doctors smashing open babies and calling it Science, i'm in support of it so long as all parties that are involved agree or are not alive yet.

Abortions I'm against alot of women that have them get trumatized by the event they need to resort to drugs alcohol or death.

however there is the rare case of the mom's life being threatened and if they cut the cord early enough she'll be fine.

But yeah no aborting the featus.

Get it while it's still an Embryo.

I don't think the question is whether you support abortion or not. Abortion is going to happen no matter what. What Bombay is saying is that even if you think abortions are the most horrible thing ever, those destroyed kids can still benefit human society as a whole, and it's a hell of a lot better than throwing them out without doing anything.

What do you mean "at what price"? Here's what would be a typical situation:

1. Woman gets knocked up cuz couple too stupid to use birth control.
2. Woman gets abortion.

There is no preventing steps 1 and 2 because they have already happened. Now here's where it turns into a "Choose Your Own Adventure" story. You can choose one of the following to happen at this point:

a: Aborted fetus is thrown in the trash, and mice are seen eating it when the garbage men come.
b: Aborted fetus is frozen solid and then used in stem cell research, saving all of humanity.

Which would you choose?

c: Abortion should be illegal because it's murder.

"C" is not an option. I'm asking Bemani to make a choice based on present day scenarios that are realistic. It's like making lemonade out of lemons rather than just wallowing in the lemons themselves. Kna mean?

Wow

As long as there is a way to get Stem Cells they should take the chance.
It would save many lives, cure diseases alot of things that scientists cannot fix.
I support Stem Cells, reason being is: Remember when that guy who was parilized from the neck down, and he got a dose of Stem Cells, they allowed him for the first time since his terrable accident, was able to move his hand.
That brought me to tears when I saw what happened, unfortunitly he eventually died due to his condition.

Remember him?
