Peer Review 10 Stem Cell Research: A Problem Exists I chose to write about stem cell research because of two things: first, I feel very strongly about the topic and second, many people don’t understand the process and benefits of this medical and scientific discovery. I am hoping that with this paper, people will come to appreciate and value this medical breakthrough. Through stem cell research, qualified physicians have been able to devise effective treatments for previously terminal patients. So ask yourself; why let so many obstacles stand in the way of this emerging field of medical science? Stem cell research has had amazing results in the medical community. It has proven to be vital in treating many different ailments in patients such as spinal cord injuries, serious burns, cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, birth defects, and Parkinson’s disease, just to name a few (Szabo,Liz,

Peer Review 11 2012). Before clinical trials were stopped due to ethical issues, outstanding results were being realized through stem cell research and the pros definitely outnumbered the cons. For instance, if a fetus does not live long enough to be born, shouldn’t something good become of it by providing help to individuals in need? Major advancements were being made by scientists in 1998, when they discovered that cells within the seven day old embryos had the remarkable ability to restore and repair damaged tissues (Bethesda, MD: National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2012). Unfortunately, religious organizations, Congress, and some other public officials have said that stem cell research is unethical. Hence, Congress passed an act that caused the drastic halt in the development and study of such procedures and demanded that the human embryos be destroyed. They failed to see that all one has to do is to study and analyze the vast amount of information on the subject, and then ask themselves which is more unethical: to let a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
