Debates On Stem Cells

The stem cell controversy has created debates on stem cells and the ethics of it. What are your thoughts on things like stem cell cloning and what impact does that have on the value of life?

Mans heart continues to be wicked and until GOd has placed final judgement on humanity mankind will continue to want to be like God most high.

Google for the article "Stem cells and Genesis". This has extensive documentation of the successes of adult stem cells, on which there is a virtual blackout by the secular media. It also points out both the immorality and scientific fraud of embryonic stem cell research.

Then what do we do with all of those frozen embryos? There are 400,000 in the US alone. I understand that after about a year they are no longer viable. Adoption of the eggs has been slow. In Italy they have a law where all fertilized embryos must be implanted into the donor. Should the US do the same?

Why are scientists working with embryonic stem cells that have repeatedly failed to produce results, and not making better use of adult stem cells which have produced all of the great success stories that have resulted from stem cell research?

Body count? Competition to become the greatest mass murder in Hell? There is no reason for it.

Since several of us here agree stem cells are avail. from other sources, why would the business world want "embryo" stem cells? They want to grow these cells by creating an embryo. If laws allow that, they would be able to legally create babies (as embryo)using selected egg/sperm donors to control genetics. Then we have special order babies or "super-cloning". A new race maybe? Open market for superior humans in control?

By the time a fetus is aborted, the cells have already started to differentiate, and it's too late to harvest stem cells.

I believe that "embryonic stem cells" refers to stem cells early stage frozen embryos.

(And IVF opens up another can of worms.)

Notlaw, you cold have gone all day without saying that! I understand your meaning, but it brings up sick feelings thinking of that.
I may be touchy in that area, I delivered 2 stillborn babies, both in my 7th month. I've not wanted to think what they did with the babies. GBY

I agree with Jack, that we can get stem cells from other sources besides the fetus.

I don't think "cloning" should be allowed.

**If you don't make dead fetuses for research then all they are is biomedical waste destined for the hospital incinerator.*8

In other words, notlaw, you are for committing human sacrifice in the name of medical research.
---Jack on 3/17/07




Jack is correct, there are other sources of stem cells besides embryos. I am against the use of aborted embryos for research, however good the research may be since I believe abortion to be wrong...it further supports abortion.

As was the case with Dolly (the lamb clone created from two female sheep), scientists can take a woman's DNA and combine it with another woman's egg in order to produce an embryo. Since in Yahweh's order it takes a man and a woman to reproduce, would then such an embryo created from two women truly be considered human? In ages to come, where would this put Man (created in Yahweh's image/likeness) if he can be completely factored out of the reproduction process?

Kim, I've heard the same things that Jack posted.

Stem cell research may find ways of improving our physical health by rejuvenating new growth in failing organs.
---NV_Steve on 3/17/07


Stem cell research is too important to abandon and should continue irrespective of the source of the genetic material used in the research.
If you don't make dead fetuses for research then all they are is biomedical waste destined for the hospital incinerator.

Ryan, what does this have to do with stem cell research?
---Jack on 3/16/07


There are more sources for stem cells besides embryos.

Stem cells can be taken from human fat cells, from the blood in umbilical cords, and several other places I can't think of off the top of my head.

A priest I know--who is also an MD--is working with others on a grant from the State Legislature for research into non-embryonic stem cells.

He told me that the embryonic stem cells have been contaminated and are not useful for research.
