Stem cell research is a topic almost everybody in the world has a viewpoint on. Many view the issue of stem cell research and stem cell therapy as morally wrong and a crime against humanity, others view the study of stem cells as the next step in modern science. What are stem cells? Stem cells are non-specialized cells that have the capability to mature into more specified cells to help with certain functions or diseases. Cells are the basic building blocks of the human body and these tiny structures compose the skin, muscles, bones, and all of our internal organs. Cells are necessary for our body to live, there are over one-hundred specialized cells in our body. Stem cell research should be supported due to the plethora of potential benefits to the medical community and the human race as a whole. Medicine today is moving quickly to make more effective cures for diseases and new techniques for treating illness. One of the new techniques being practiced today is stem cell therapy.
Stem cell research is the most promising solution to many diseases including Alzheimer's disease, many blood disorders, nerve damage or cancer.
StemCell Action was formed in 2010 to promote stem cell research and raise awareness for the many benefits that stem cell research will bring to medicine. We are aware of the moral questions surrounding the topics but we are convinced that scientific breakthrough will help stem cell research be fully in line with religious beliefs. Today, promising new ways of harvesting stem cells are being researched which might do away with the need of using embryonic stem cells
