The Obama administration has repealed restrictions on federal funding for stem cell research, which has been characterized as both a miraculous development that could cure cancer and other diseases and as an immoral technology that threatens the very essence of what it means to be human. Through objective discussion, numerous direct quotes, and full-color illustrations this title examines What Are the Origins of the Stem Cell Controversy? What Benefits Could Stem Cell Research Offer? Is Stem Cell Research Moral? Are There Effective Alternatives to Embryonic Stem Cell Research? Should the Government Support Stem Cell Research?
