Stem Cells: Controversies & Regulation

The stem cell controversy is the consideration of the ethics of research involving the development, usage, and destruction of human embryos. The controversy centered on the moral implications of destroying human embryos. Many funding and research restrictions on embryonic cell research will not impact research on induced pluripotent stem cells allowing for a promising portion of the field of research to continue relatively unhindered by the ethical issues of embryonic research.
