Essay on Treatment Using Stem Cells

655 Words 3 Pages
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, or cells that can differentiate into different cells. Stem cells are often divided into two different classes: embryonic and adult. Adult stem cells can turn into many, but not all, cells, allowing these cells to be used in the treatment of some problems. Because of this, adult stem cells are often considered “multipotent”. Embryonic stem cells can become any type of cell and any organ, creating great optimism in medical fields. Because of this, embryonic stem cells are often considered “ pluripotent”. Although there are great developments that can come out of stem cell research, there exist many problems that concern many, but not necessarily most, people.

Although there are great developments that can come out of stem cell research, there exist many problems that concern many, but not necessarily most, people. These include the classic arguments concerning whether or not an embryo can be considered “ human” and whether or not lawmakers have any right to prohibit or inhibit scientific development.
Many people like to provide others with their input into the topic of stem cell research. Lawmakers love to do so through their ideological inputs into the arguments in order to create more arguments while, hopefully, supporting their constituents. Many people like to involve themselves with something that they do not really care about just because. Other people like to involve themselves in order to push a personal agenda, be it political or religious. When it comes to stem cell research, the people that are actually effected and whose opinions really matter are the investors, the scientists,
