Case Study Essay Stem Cell Research : Students Were Asked To Read And Respond To A Controversial Issue Raised By Advances In Modern Biological Sciences

555 words - 3 pages

Case StudyStem CellsThis argument concentrates on the value of Stem Cells.

I can keep going on about the facts that stem cell research is in-fact important to the U.S citizens, and can help in many ways.The problem is that current stocks of stem cells have taken up a "non-human molecule" called N-glycolylneuraminic acid, probably when they were grown in a lab facility containing animal materials from mice and other bacteria. So not only will President Bush not overlook the fact that even the most isolated bio-facility cannot keep a well maintained research without contaminating the product, and that's why the funded ended around January 1, 2001. I believe we can change that of the practice, and again relate to the British, and evaluate their expertise, because this research is important to America, and to me. So while president bush plays stubborn, we are being held back from what could be the answer to many of Americas questions... "why haven't we discovered a cure for...?"
