The beginning:
Stem Cell Research: Costs, Access and Quality
Debates surrounding the morality, ethics, cost, and benefits of stem cell research have been raging for over a decade. Stem cells are quite amazing, as Heller (2010) states, human bodies have a “remarkable regenerative capacity is the result of a highly controlled population of stem cells that bestow most of your organs with the striking ability of continuous regeneration” (p. 472). Robertson (2010) explains that the cells are “pluripotent” which means that they are capable of forming all of cells in the body (p. 191). Researchers are finding that stem cells may be able to treat conditions such as spinal cord injuries and hearing loss, but religious groups, ethicists, and Republican leadership...
The end:
.....d make an enormous impact on the health and wellbeing of millions of people in the twenty first century and beyond.
