Is human embryonic stem cell research ethical? Yes. Some disagree because it is TRUE that, this embryonic stem cell will one day become a living person. I am not opposing this particular point. What I’m trying to state, is that, we don’t need embryonic stem cells from people who are interested to make a baby. Instead of those 1.3 million people who are choosing to have an abortion, or those people who are throwing a life into the gutters just a 1 minute pleasure… they can be the cause of saving the life of many. The life of more than 12 million people who are dying each year due to cancer! Did you know that cancer is the leading cause of death!. An average of 1500 people die daily from some form of cancer. Cancer happens when the embryonic stem cell is transformed into specialized cells. In other words, when fertilization happens; There is only 6 embryonic stem cells in the mothers uterus, Which is NOT considered as a living being till 6 weeks. During the process of transforming stem cells into kidney, heart, brain, etc, due to problems that occur somewhere in the process cancer cells are developed. Human embryonic stem cells research IS ETHICAL because scientist should be allowed to understand the development of normal cells and correct the errors that cause MANY DISEASES THAT CAUSE DEATH.

We come across millions of people each year that suffer deficient organs and to replace all those is not an easy job for doctors and for the donors because; one these people whom are donating their organs are giving away their life for a closer death. Second the number of organs available for transportation is less then what is actually needed. The thing that is so special and unique about embryonic stem cells is that they can be altered to grow into any specific cell in the human body. Its good to know that these embryonic stem cells have the capacity to reduce cancer and many diseases like: Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis, leukemia, heart...
