Stem cell research & cloning
What are the relevant questions to ask about the above issues?
Is it ever right to harvest embryo's just to acquire stem cells?
Is it acceptable to change the DNA in a cell, trigger its growth, and the prevent it from becoming an embryo, and then a baby, and just use it to grow a tissue or organ replacement for a human being? (That is specifically the one who supplied the DNA)
The law says that research on embryo's can only be done while they are under 14 days old. Is that acceptable?
If you accept research on embryos would you raise or lower the age of embryos that can be used?
When does life begin?
(see time chart for human development)
