Stem cell research, the term is full of controversies. At some point in life, we all must have wondered what stem cells are and why so many controversies are associated with them.
We must have wondered about it when we see the advertisement featuring the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan saying,
“Dijiye apne bachche ko Zindagi bhar ka tohfa.”
This article features the pros of stem cell research and will try to transform the mentality of people to praise and adopt this research and help save the life of the near and dear ones.
Let’s start with the meaning of stem cells!
Stem Cells: Overview
A TSC is an undifferentiated cell capable of proliferation, self-renewal, production of much differentiated functional progenies, regenerating tissue after injury, and flexibility in using these options.
The basic theme of stem cells is to rejuvenate the power of creating new cells for particular organs. Stem cells are found at the umbilical cord, which is the attachment point of the mother and fetus. The idea is to give those cells at the time of birth and preserve them for the future to make the person’s health pink.
This research is not new. It’s been observed that they have been practiced since 1998. From that point in time only, the research has always been debated.
1. What is the Debate surrounding Stem Cells?
You must be thinking, why have stem cells been in the debate? It’s because there are specific ethical dilemmas related to this.
The debate is mainly concerned with embryonic stem cells. The counterparts of this research say that there is a destruction of embryos during this research, which is ethically incorrect for the human race.
2. Religious Argument on Stem Cells
Another argument commonly made by religious perspective is that they believe that God has sent everyone down to earth; interruption in this would be equivalent to insulting him. They want things to be in accordance with the natural cycle of life and death.
Some experts oppose it because we have already exceeded the limit to which mother earth can feed us; implementing this kind of research may lead to an extensive scarcity of resources.
I admit that the cons have their perspective, which may or may not be right, but at the end of the day, it’s all about the family or the loved ones who bring eternal happiness and the curve on our face, which we call a “smile”
So, look at the brighter side of life and be happy with all those dear people who were always and will always stand by your side and #supportlife!
