Ethics Program 4
Stem Cell Research "Frontier of Hope and Concern"
Chapters: 12
..................................................................................................

Imagine the ability to treat a person suffering from Parkinson's disease with their own brain stem cells or a young boy battling leukemia with stem cells from umbilical cord blood. Imagine the ability of embryonic stem cells to grow into any cell of the human body and the potential of treating crippling disease. Stem cell research is helping scientists to unlock the mystery of human life and develop life saving therapies. While much hope has been generated by this research, moral and ethical concerns have been raised by the use of embryonic stem cells, which is covered in this program.
