Default Is it true that stem-cell research are illegal?



My friend is paralyzed from the waist down because of a car accident, he said that they told him there is a cure (i think he said stem cell research) but its illegal in the US. I am just wondering why is it exactly illegal, I've read that some people consider it murder, but i don't understand, do they have to kill people? or use people for experiments?

No, it is not illegal. In fact, I believe the research in question uses a person's own "adult" stem cells to regenerate spinal column tissue. However, I also believe there were some scandals with the researchers in question and their results were called into question.

Obama has lifted the ban on stem cell research. However, in many European-countries, like here in Norway, it is illegal, in some cases strictly regulated.

Rightmirem, in some cases that is true. They could also make another stem cell specialize into the organ they need to replace. This would cause a difference in genes that the body might reject it, so using a family member is highly suggested. (Please note that I'm not 100% sure about this.)

Stem cell research is illegal in some places and countries. Although embryonic stem cell research is not illegal in the United States, two states, California and New Jersey, have passed legislation permitting it and others are considering such laws.
