I believe the question, "Should stem cell research be allowed" would turn into a fine debate.  
Fact 1: Stem cell research is taken stem cells from aborted babies or babies that mothers give for money.
Fact 2: Stem cells are used to grow organ or limb cells, for the body.
Fact 3: Stem cells, if researched, can be used to replace limbs or organs that have been lost.

stem cells are taken from developing babies at a very early stage, before they even reach the embreyo stage. So calling them "babies" is a bit of a stretch. And in America at least, its illegal to pay a women to abort her child.

Figuratively, yes.  But it does not change thte fact that it happens.  Either way, stem cell research is a good topic.

I think "facts" don't shouldn't take into account illegal actions. Legalizing stem cell research wouldn't legalize selling fetuses for cash, but keeping it illegal would make it much easier for that illicit industry to flourish.

But illegal acts are not illegal all over the US, so they are needed facts.  Why are we debating here???

Theoretically, stem cells would be used to replace organs that could be mutated at birth, correct? Call me a heartless monster, but don't we want these people to be weeding themselves out of society so they don't reproduce and pass the genes on? Our world seems to be overpopulated already, so why do we need to be filling it with defects? Stem cell research, as far as I can see, doesn't do anyone any good in the long term. It's just a shor  term solution.

Watching the Republican party deal with a real life consequence to their holier than thou positions gave me great pleasure.

"It's evil!...oh, you mean it can help the best president ever, Reagan, and those like him? Then I guess it's not THAT evil."

It's always nice when republican senators have their daughters get an abortion, too, I might add.

Let's get the facts straight.


Fact 1: Stem cell research is taken stem cells from aborted babies or babies that mothers give for money.
Fact 2: Stem cells are used to grow organ or limb cells, for the body.
Fact 3: Stem cells, if researched, can be used to replace limbs or organs that have been lost.


Fact 1 is obviously not a fact!!  Stem cell research is the scientific research of stem cells (obviously).  To even understand what a stem cell is, you need a little about reproduction.  Blah blah.. all the nasty stuff.  Then a sperm penetrates an egg and then the whole DNA shabang.  After which point, the cell divides into more cells.  At some point the cells specialize (exactly why or how is not clear) into specific cell types (e.g. liver cells, brain cells, etc.).  The cells before the specialization are called stem cell.  Researches on stem cell do use stem cells, but they are NOT taken from aborted babies given by mothers that give for money!!!!  Stem cells are grown in petrie dishes from donated sperms and eggs.  Obviously since the cells have not specialized yet, all you have are a bunch of cells (a blob) that don't have arms or legs or head or eyes or any of those specialized organs.
