Convince me on the stem cell debate. Personally I'm currently not for stem cell research on the ground that it requires fertilized embryos which in an average of 14 days in womb like conditions will survive and begin splitting into the earliest stages of a human child. This being why we have a set limit at 14 days to use stem cells. Part of me can understand the advantages of using the cells to heal countless diseases but at the cost of another human life? That's where I begin to stop and question , espescially if that human cannot make the decision for themselves.

However, my opinion on this like some other topics in life are not completely formed and I'm open to changing my mind perhaps. Discuss.

Everything that helps keeping biological research down is SUPER ANNOYING and one of the reasons why science has a greater affinity to preposterous metals.

As convincing a stance as it being "super annoying" not to let them research this, I am not convinced.

Now, on the other hand, you do have research done by wreaking pain or maiming mammals and other complex life, which do grieve, and do feel pain, that is far more unethic than killing life as complex as a germ.

Understandable a controversial topic. I personally support it. It sounds heartless to many, but feti at that age don't feel or think much compared to the individuals it is saving as reward. It's like killing an ant to save an human.
Definetely better than many other cruel things science does like animal testing for medicine and ESPECIALLY cosmetic products.

There's the numerical argument. Save hundreds of thousands + of lives by developing vaccines and treatments, or test on hundreds/thousands of what's considered to be "not alive" in most western countries?

Then the comparative argument. Test on thousands of not-alive embryos or thousands of alive animals?

Then the accuracy argument. They're well known to be far more accurate at producing correct results compared to animals, because they're closer to humans and stuff.

Even if they aren't perfect according to your standards of what is and isn't alive, they're far better than what we have now, which is animal testing. They're far more accurate and animals are much more capable of feeling pain than barely-alive embryos.

I agree that stem cells should be used for research and medical purposes. It might be unethical but they would benefit society greatly.

I could say something about hypocrisy here (let us use stem cells, fetuses and even whole born and even grown mammals, as long as they are not primates!).
I could say the whole "discussion" is pointless because it has happened millions of times around the globe already with the SAME arguments we used here.
I could also say nothing at all ( too late for that :D ).
The thing is: Look around you right now. What do you see? What can't you see but you know is there? You will not know A SINGLE THING that is not a product or a subject of scientific research. How many of us would not be alive if it weren't for science? That scientists have no empathy or are not altrustic is plain propaganda. We always search the most humane method of research first. ONLY if it is not possible with anything alse we use things like fetal calb serum (two weeks ago in cell-biology in my case).
Good day.

This is true because if you wash your hands then you're killing the bacterias on your hand and if all life should be preserved then why are you doing that? I am all for Stem Cell Research as long as it doesn't perverse science and promote progress.
