Stem cell research is certainly controversial. In fact, the government turned down funding for it during President Bush’s time. Many who recognize the impact of stem cell research and therapy of course opposed this restriction, citing that it hindered significant medical progress.What are the real reasons people are against stem cell research? The answers vary. Some cry “abortion” because in the process of harvesting embryonic stem cells for various medical purposes (one of them is forbody parts to regrow), fertilized human eggs are destroyed. The bottom line for conservatives is that stem cell research kills human life.

Many question stem cell research because of moral issues. However, morality becomes blurred when one takes into consideration that aborting embryos has already been legalized in the country. This makes the entire issue ethically and morally ambiguous.

The bottom line of stem cell research controversies is that people will always find a way to oppose it, regardless of its potential and obvious benefits. While it is laudable to cite reasons (ethical, moral, and others that hopefully grounded in logic), it is also important to keep an open mind and eye about the bigger implications which scientific research like this can bring to humanity.
