Default Is embryonic stem cell research ethical, or



is it morally wrong? Why? a slight change in the question:
Is embryonic stem cell research ethical or unethical? why? also is it morally acceptable or unacceptable? (thanks puppyraiser8! )

Harvesting something that is going to be destroyed ANYWAY, why not put it to good use? I'm dying of a blood diease, and stem cell research may save me, but W said " no-no-NO" Thanks W....

Well, for starters "ethical" is different from "moral." I am a science major. I don't see anything ethically wrong with it. Where one stands on the moral issue depends on the person. I am not sure how I personally feel about it. I don't think I should stop the research if I have a moral problem with it though. Then I should just not participate.

Not only is it ethical, it's RIGHT.
For those who have a problem with it, cloning IS an answer. Also, thousands of fetuses are discarded every day, some for abortion, and some for miscarriage. Why not put those fetuses to use? Then their lives, no matter how short, wouldn't have been useless.

Also, for those against cloning, remember: God made Eve by taking the rib of Adam. How is that not cloning?
