Political and religious views

The political debate is whether to allow scientists to extract stem cells from surplus, unneeded, frozen embryos left over from in-vitro fertilization procedures in fertility clinics

Conservative Christian groups opposed Bush's decision because of the fine line between used descendents of already-extracted stem cells, and killing of new embryos.

Stem cell research allows scientist to reproduce body organs and tissue replacing damaged or missing nerves or cells.

Funding is needed to support research and testing in labs


In september 2000 president george bush denies funds for any form of stem cell research l.jpg

In September 2000President George Bush denies funds for any form of stem cell research

Bush changes his mind in August 2001 allowing funding but only to old embryos


Slide29 l.jpg

In February 2008 researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in California saved multiple lab rats which had suffered a stroke

medical stem cell rebuilding can save lives cure people from certain disease and handicaps

There is so much to be learned and not enough support.scientist have only touched on the surface of stem cell research.
