Embryonic and Adult Stem Cells

Book - 2013
Rate this:
The ongoing debate over stem cell research has evolved as the science has. The Catholic Church now supports adult stem cell research, but many are still uneasy with the idea, especially when it involves extracting cells from embryos. Is further research needed to prove the efficacy of cell therapies? The FDA does regulate stem cell products, but does this oversight hinder the market? Is Texas's regulation of stem cell research a boon or a bust to research? If most Americans support funding stem cell research, why is there not an analogous push by politicians to open avenues of funding? Do reprogrammed adult stem cells raise new ethical issues? This anthology debates these and other relevant questions.
