By lifting the funding and ethical ban on stem cell research scientists will have a better understanding the complexity and disarray of the cellular structure of humans with a lifted ban on federal funding to front the research of stem cell and stem cell development. Two types of stem cells are key to unlocking the complex coding of cellular make-up and those are embryonic and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cell research has created supposed ethical issues because those specific cells are taken from embryos that are not yet developed and those cells have no exact duty as opposed to adult stem cells which have particular duties throughout the body. Embryonic stem cells provides greater development in research because those cells are …show more content…
The federal government has created an eight year ban that denied any stem cell research facility the opportunity to receive federal funding which can more than double the state funding. President Barrack Obama has lifted that ban to allow researchers and scientists to pursue all of the possibilities that stem cell research has to offer. However, several organizations pressure the government to ban the research completely. Organizations such as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops based in Washington, D. C. is against Obama’s decision to overturn the ban on further stem cell research. However, if that organization succeeds stem cell research will not have the proper funding needed to make the discoveries possible (USCCB). Ethical bans have stunned further development in stem cell research along with funding. Ethical bans such as limits to the amount of embryonic stem cell specimens collected in a specified amount of time. Limits such as amount of specimens dramatically puts the research process behind its full potential of development. By lifting ethical bans stem cells research can flourish more efficiently in the day to day of experimentation. Stem cell research will improve the life of millions of Americans with heart disease. The National Institute of Health Resources in Stem Cell Research (NIH) has made a major breakthrough regarding heart diseases by using rodents such as mice and rats to improve the cardiovascular tissue within the
