For my argument paper, I am going to right about whether or not there should be embryonic stem cell research. I think there should be embryonic cell research because there are numerous advantages for it. The medical field would greatly benefit from stem cell research being pursued and funded by the national government. This topic interests me because there is a possibility that this research can lead to a lot of medical discoveries that could save a lot of people’s lives. Stem cell research could be the way of the future and set medical practices way into the future. Stem cells can cure many degenerative diseases and help with spinal injuries and could possibly help people walk after a major accident. However a lot of people find the research of embryonic stem cells to be unethical because scientists have to breakdown human embryo. I believe that the benefits outweigh the negatives when it comes to research. As the pro-choice versus pro-life argument arises throughout the United States, there would be a better choice to give an embryo for a scientific discovery that could help the world. People are also worried about allowing people to use stem cells because there is no certain evidence that it would work. Scientists also do not know the possible side effects of using stem cells. I think that even though there is a high risk, the reward is far greater. With funding and permission for stem cell research, it could put the United States far above other countries in the medical field. I do not want to sound insensitive to parenthood but the world is already growing in population at an amazing rate so giving a few embryos to science would not be a bad thing. The scientists justify using embryos saying that they cannot feel any pain and do not look like humans. People still think it is immoral and wrong for scientists to use them though. Embryonic stem cell research is a really controversial topic and that is why I think it will be a good topic for me to write my argument paper on.
