It is is important to realize that before we start that this is an issue of ethics not morals. Within saying this any religious arguments cannot be stated. If any religious arguments do come up there is one answer to those arguments and that is that the scientific advances that could come as a result of this exceed those of any persons belief. The people who will argue religious reasons are not directly connected therefor they are irrelevant to the decision. When considering this resolution we have to take into consideration the advances that have and will be made and the lives that can be saved and the diseases that could be prevented. Also the opposite side will say stem cell researchers are killers but an embryo is not alive unless it can survive outside the whom and the embryos they are testing on could not survive.

@ Spaztoid

No, it is correct debate format for the instigator to be Pro since the BoP should fall on them. The Instigator goes first which means they SHOULD be Pro since they have to state the case for Con to refute. If Con were to go first, how would they refute a case which had not yet been presented?

The contender should be CON and each resolution should be edited in such a way that the Instigator is Pro. End of story.

You should be Con, or change the resolution to "Resolved: Stem Cell research is ethical."

Is the pro position that it is always unethical to restrict stem cell research?

I do not disagree with your point of view hence I cannot debate against it . . .
