As everyone knows that the objective of stem cell research is to save people’s precious life. Once this research gets to success, injured neurons could no longer be a threat to human’s life. Because the embryonic stem cell research is controversial, scientists have developed other ways to extract the stem cells without killing the embryos. Undoubtedly, these ways are much more acceptable and should be supported substantially. However, these ways, including taking adult stem cells and reprogramming skin cells, either have not been approved yet or would not be safe enough. Considering this situation, I don’t think the expanded embryonic stem cell research should be suspended.

Unformatted text preview: The embryonic stem cell research just provides one more choice to get stem cell, and it is probably the only way to repair or replace the injured neurons. Limiting the embryonic stem research definitely makes patients less hopeful to restore to health or continue to live. In that case, blocking the embryonic stem research is just a chronic process to destroy human life. Human’s life is precious because they have thoughts and emotions. Killing the embryos does not mean to kill human life since the embryos have no thoughts and emotions. As far as I am concerned, the Royce C. Lamberth’s judgment to limit embryonic stem cell research is not advisable....
