Stem Cell Research: Morally Wrong or Modern Marvel?

What if someone told you that a new, progressive technology could potentially cure cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, spinal cord injuries, or diabetes? What if in years to come, scientists could not only treat the symptoms of disease, but target the cause? This new, progressive technology is called Stem Cell Research, and it’s been a debatable topic both politically and medically.

According to Stem Cell Research Foundation, Stem Cell Research can be defined as a “group of new techniques that rely on replacing diseased or dysfunctional cells with healthy, functional ones.” Stem cells are primitive cells found in embryos that have the potential to give rise to other types of cells. To create stem cells for research, a stem cell line must be created from the inner cell mass of a week old embryo. Batches of cells can be produced, then researched. This technique was conceived when there was an excess of embryos created in vitro fertilization, which is a process where a sperm cell and egg are brought together in a petri dish, rather than intercourse. Many scientists believe that Stem Cell Research looks promising, will revolutionize modern medicine, and save approximately 128 million Americans.
So, what is at fault? It’s a seemingly good solution for diseases that plague this generation, so what’s the controversy? Well, controversy lies within one’s opinion of what is considered a human being. Richard M. Doerflinger, Deputy Director of the Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities, expressed that even a one-celled zygote is the beginning of a new human being. He expresses, “every living member of the human species, including the human embryo, must be treated with the respect due to a human person.”
When exactly is life formed? Is it when the sperm meets the egg? Is it after the zygote is formed? Now, that’s up to you to decide. I believe that Stem Cell Research has the potential to save many lives from disease. I believe that the government should invest more money than what it is currently being doled out. President Bush says, “Embryonic stem cell research is at the leading edge of a series of moral hazards.” He calls it moral hazards. I call it a future of saving lives.

In BCA right now and I finished my work beaucoup early.
So, haha I guess no one really misses the journal....but to clarify, I still read everyone elses and comment when I am able...which is basically in BCA class. It's not like I was comment-crazy before anyway.
Anyhoo, things have been going okay.

Mademoiselle Miguez's last day was TODAY...(I WILL miss her!)

TONIGHT I GET TO SEE MEET THE GREAT CONCEALER AND TRRIAAAGEE!!! YAAAAHH HOOO!!!

Tommorow, I get to see Hallie shake what her momma gave her!

Sunday...will be a day of rest and studying

French Vanilla cool whip looks ALOT like butter

I go to N E W YOOOORKKK CITTTYY in like 15 days or so

My user pic is hella ancient

I'm contemplating either.....dying my hair all brown, or redoing highlights. I have an appointment next week

I miss my brothers and sisters and mother and weenie dog.

My mom is so beautiful....no matter what.

Tyler Sonnier is hot and he's sitting right next to me. = )

Things have been whizzing a mile a minute.

No time for anyyyythinggggg.




I have rehearsal until 8:30 tonight. My weekends in October are S H O T with the Patriot Acts. ::Sigh:: Gotta keep on truckin'




I recently bought jon stewart's new book, and it is hilariouss. It was only 17! Woo hoo.







Today, I had a reallllly cool conversation with my Civics teach. We watched the debate and I could sense that he is on the left of thangs....but I REALLY appreciate how he presents information and facts in a very unbiased environment. People ask him what his political affiliation is, and he wishes not to answer or impose HIS opinions on us. So that's real cool. So after clas, I was like..Mann...thankyou so much. And he was like...for what? And I said....Just for informing us...theres so much that I don't know...
And we talked a little bit about politics....about how....President Bush will be the most PRAISED president in history if in 30 years, peace is achieved in the Middle East. But....if in 30 years, there is no progress, a war is still being fought....whether it be civil war, our war, whatever....He will be thought to be the WORST president in history. And right now....things are looking verrrry glum.








Damn, i've been so tired this week. I......must.....get....sleep!










So yeah, this weekend...I have no idea whats going on besides rehearsals. I might hang out with Stefan tonight, after rehearsal. I don't know though. I'd like to.

















I'm thought to be a bad influence and that REALLY makes me step back and check myself. What did I do wrong? How do other adults percieve me? Am I really a horrible person with absolutely no morals and no boundaries? I REALLY honestly don't think I am....but I don't know. Yes, my parents give me freedom and can be extremely lenient at times, but I've never done anything to lose trust. MY PARENTS TRUST ME. WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR THEM? But then again, I'm not on the outside looking at myself.....I dont know what they see. I'm really upset about this....because I feel I didn't do anything wrong and blame was placed on me. ::Sigh:: I'm really confused.


















I'm going take a nap.
