One of the Presidential campaign discussions is the ability to use embryonic stem cells for research. These stem cells from embryos, kills the embryo. Some people argue they are killing life. On the other hand, these stem cells can form into any tissue of the body and may be used to allow tissue regeneration to treat many diseases. Harvard University is asking permission from the review board to produce cloned human embryos for research on diseases. The scientists know they are walking a thin line but they have said they would not attempt to clone a human.
I believe that Harvard should be allowed to uses those cells for disease research. It has the potential of treating many diseases; this alone should be a good reason. Also many countries have already started their research. In the micros, people would have the ability to be treated for diseases; therefore, live a longer and healthier life.
