Stem cells can Help 1/3rd of the population by curing ddiseases, cancer, alzheimers and parkinsons disease

I accept. My opponent shall have the burden to show that embryonic stem cell research is good. This means excluding adult stem cells.

Go for it, Pro.

FF. I'll wait until later to see if my opponent comes back before I give any arguments.

Con

Forfeit again.

Well my opponent's arguments are about adult stem cells, so they're irrelevant.

But here's my argument:

Embryonic stem cells are full fledged human beings. Full fledged human beings should be protected by the law. And the ends do not justify the means.

I won't expand any more unless my opponent comes back.

It's unclear from the title of this debate and the initial comments whether or not the debate encompasses all stem cell types or only embryonic stem cells.
