    [POLL] Stem Cell Research

    I'm working on a survey for my high school debate, so I'm here to ask for your help. All you need is to vote and tell me your age, opinions are also widely accepted. I guess we can make it as a UCP debate too.

    i vote yes, providing there are limits on the amount of research as well as the age of the embryos (as in how far they have progressed) if they are embryonic stem cells (iirc the adult stem cells aren't much use for research)

    Yes, in the proper hands (!!) it can make a lot of important things.For example cures to many diseases which are determined by DNA. However this matter should be handled very carefully.

    and i am 18

    Yes, it should. I don't know why we should brake down science just because of some religious aspects. Especially when the goal is to learn more about things such as fighting against diseases.

    And the age is 20.

    I'm 17 and i voted yes but this could very easily turn into a horror-film esque situation with allsorts of mutation going on. But if it helps diseases then I'm all for it.

    YES, it has a very real capability to eliminate Alzheimers, some cancers, the organ donor list, or even the need for many prostetic limbs. The Pros massively outweigh the con. I'm 16.

    I don't see any reason why this shouldn't be conducted besides crazy Christian sphincters.

    Well i'm the first no, so let the dabate begin, remember this, you were once a bunch of stem cells as well, so u could not exisit today as well. The mutations were also brought up as well, scientists don't know what they are doing, they are just guessing what'll happen and they can screw up pretty bad, i've seen movies in class where cows were born with 5 legs, the fifth set protruding from their neck, and that was not stem cell reaserch, it was cloning which is a much easier procedure to perform then to try and replicate exact and specialized cells. As well several people said yes, but only if it is used properly, we're human and fact of the matter matter is that if it is legalized hundreds of scientists will be working on it and several are bound to go wrong cause nothing gets done right...

    I'm 17 btw
