Should we ignore morality and focus on stem-cell research?

Posted by: PetersSmith

Stem-cells allow regenerative cell growth in humans that could possibly create functioning organs, limbs, and may allow transsexuals to have children. However, stem-cells are taken from both dead and live humans and thus is considered morally wrong. Should we abandon morality and have a focus on stem-cell research? Should we use the bodies of serial killers or aborted fetuses? You decide!

  • Yes, stem-cell research is the key to our medical future. We must advance the research, for science and for our greater well-being.

  • No, using human beings like animals is wrong. Certainly we can find other ways to produce the same effect as stem-cells

  • Stem cell research is not all from aborted fetuses. They come from other resources. This is the future of medicine. I don't view it as immoral. One fetus can save hundreds of people. This stem cell research is so amazing and helpful that scientists are beginning to be able to recreate other organs. Instead of waiting for years for a blood type O- heart, you can just get one grown. Pro-stem cell research.

  • To allow millions if perplex to die because you aren't willing to sacrifice so few, in my opinion is immoral. So it is immoral to not continue stem cell research

  • Morality is an ever evolving characteristic of humanity,it isn't static.You should know this from history. Morality is what we thinks best for our self's,,, not just us as individuals,,,not just us as separate society's..but us as one united species.It's in human nature to play "god",it's what we've always done...haven't we?

  • How is researching stem cells to prevent the suffering and deaths of others ignoring morality?

  • There is some science I wish we wouldn't approach. It's called the natural order, and replication is unnatural. We have replicated things into the biosystem, and that's unethical to me. I don't toy with nature. It's the only thing we can trust. As for disease research, you can stimulate something similar to an epomzime, so things like this are better used in preservation life banks.

Biased question. You are assuming that stem cell research is immoral. Maybe you should just ask if we should focus on stem cell research instead of making a biased poll.

I don't consider it morally wrong.

If you don't consider it morally wrong or wrong in general than just vote yes. It's not a biased poll, I believe we should focus on stem-cell research. Morality is the only reason I can see why we shouldn't, if you have another "no" reason, then please explain it to me as I was not aware of it.

Bias is natural. Everybody is biased, it happens. Just say you disagree on the morality when you vote.
