Where is the ethical threshold in stem cell research?
Is it acceptable to use human stem cells from embryos created in a lab? Are mouse embryonic cells permissible?
This research is showing promise to cure an astonishing range of diseases. It has been shown to greatly improve the condition of autistic children. It is being used to heal injured knees. And human embryonic stem cells have been used to grow new matter in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, who then improved.
What are your thoughts?
I do not think ethics applies. Since stem cells are only potential parts of humans, it would akin to asking "where is the ethical threshold in fingernail clippings research." No threshold.
that is a great answer and I believe that it is amazing that it can help so many
If you do nothing to it, it becomes a human. How is your thinking different from saying a 40 year old is only a potential 41 year old? What is your thinking? Also, the only way to get the stem cells is from a fully functioning, living, embryo.
Human stem cells and fingernail clippings in the same league? hmmmm.
