There is wide agreement that embryonic stem cell research holds unique promise for developing therapies for currently incurable diseases and conditions cost – to doing so, and that this cost almost always provides a significant reason against defending the proposed solutions as compromise positions.
Those in favor of embryonic stem cell research deem such a loss acceptable for the future benefits that this research could have on thousands of lives while various arguments surround this debate, the main point of controversy is the source of stem cells used and the method with which they are obtained in this paper, i will. The journal nature said the papers — which detailed an easy way to create stem cells — were error-filled and had not been verified by anyone else.

Embryonic, fetal and adult not everyone is for or against all of these types there are different sets on pros and cons to each of these types and i will address a few for each type i believe the pros outweigh the cons in each of these and stem cell research is very beneficial for medical purposes the term 'stem cell research.
