Edited Version Topic: Should Embryonic Stem Cell Research be Permitted? Section I: Part B The people working hard towards developing a cure are stake holders. In their lab coats, busy at work in clinics, men and women scientists are working day and night to progress embryonic stem cell research. These scientists are now middle aged having been working on this issue for over a decade now. Scientists have been able to do experiments with human embryonic stem cells since 1998, when a group led by Dr. James Thomson at the University of Wisconsin developed a technique to isolate and grow the cells. Frustrated scientists in the US anxiously wait before judges decide on whether federally funded work on human embryonic stem cells should continue (Robertson, 2010). Then there are the men in the dark suits and brief cases, these are the government officials, which have the ability to remove or give funding towards this issue. These stake holders are directly related to this issue. These are the upper class powerful individuals in this country. Some of them feel that too much time and money.They want to put their money where the quick cures are. While others of this group are more practical and understand that this is going to take time, but will be promising. The patient that has an illness that could be cured by embryonic stem cell research is also a stake holder. These middle aged, elderly people that have diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s are directly affected by this issue. They are dealing with these illnesses and can only hope that someday there will be a cure. If a cure is even discovered 20 years from now, it might

not benefit them, but it will for people in the future. For them they can only hope that no one else in the future would have to suffer through what they are experiencing. The doctors of these patients are stake holders. These doctors could be of any gender, are generally middle aged, and have a higher socio economic status. Whenever you go to your doctor and are sick you can tell all they want to do is their best to help cure you. These highly educated professionals have an extensive amount of training to learn how to individually help people that are ill. Well what about those patients with Parkinson’s, where no definite medication will cure them. This leaves the doctor feeling terrible and they just wish for a cure. They know that scientists out there are working towards a cure, but it will take some time. When
