I think stem cells should be allowed to be used as often as they need to be because we have suposedubly alot of uncurable desiases in this world that i think can be cured today by stem cells some people think it more like cloning and it messing with nature
1. caner can be cured by healthy cells usually by taking cells out of embellical cord when babies are fist born
2. many STD's may be cured
3. and possibly deformities when in the womb


Only 500 words, so I will do this quick.

1) The use of embryonic stem cells for research involves the destruction of blastocysts formed from fertilized human eggs. The destruction of blastocysts can be compared to killing and abusing human life, making it immoral. A life is a life and should never be compromised.

2) The development of this technology can lead to knowledge on cloning. The abuse of this can be compared to nuclea research.

@PRO: Killing off life to save lives isn't right.
Debate Round No. 1


1) technically you don't kill one to save one you simply take a portion of peoples stem cells stem cells and use them to save others.
2)most of the stem cells used are from the umbilical cord with out killing anything


1) Taking cells from peope via the bone marrow can result in a painful destruction.
2) To use the umbilical cord, it must be planned ahead by close family members, so that the body doesn't reject it.
3) In the case of embryonic cells, the extraction of stem cells from an embryo requires its destruction. In other words, it requires that a human life be killed.
4) Abuse of the the power to "play god" will occur.
==Dropped Argument==
1) The risks of this technology (Cloning)is simply too high.
Debate Round No. 2


cjmo forfeited this round.


Extend Arguments and Vote CON.

1. Bone Marrow stem cells = Painful
2. Umbilical Cord Stem Cells = Planned by Famliy members, Not likely.
3. Embryonic Cells = Killing Human Life, making it immoral.
4. Abuse of Stem Cell Technology Will Occur
5. Cloning may be possible.
6. Cloning is an abuse of life.

When considered together, the disadvantages outweigh any possible advantages...

"pro could EASILY rampage, which he could have EASILY DONE."

XD, you basically repeated yourself.

Probably some DDO word for posting extremely intellectual and crushing arguments that makes your opponent look bad. Or something like that anyways, lol.

:O? "Rampage"?
Posted by 16kadams 4 years ago
pro could easily rampage, which he could have easily done.

Pro's spelling is horrendous, and the round 2 arguement didn't even make sense.
Posted by Yarely 4 years ago
I believe that stem cells should be used very rarely for dire exceptions. Other than that its out of the question. It makes me extremely angry when there are stories of people using stem cells for cosmetic reasons.
