Stem cells: n. Undifferentiated, primitive cells with the ability both to multiply and to differentiate into specific kinds of cells.

Stem cells hold the promise of allowing researchers to grow specialized cells or tissue, which could be used to treat injuries or disease.

Stem cell research is controversial because the best source of stem cells is human fetal tissue. Harvesting the stem cells destroys the embryo, which many see as morally problematic.

Purpose of this Site: to serve as a starting point for learning about the ethical debate over stem cell research. To engage in this debate in a thoughtful and respectful way requires that we understand the science of stem cells, the regulatory context, and the key ethical arguments that have already been made.
