    Embryonic stem cells and Adult stem cells - Conclusion Research
    Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are "thought to have more disease-treating potential than similar cells found in adults," says Clemmitt. However, Bush and other Christian conservative advocates argue that "morality forbids destroying additional embryos, regardless of the cells' treatment-producting potential," whereas supporters of ESC research voice that the "cells' life-saving potential outweighs qualms over destruction of IVF (in vitro fertilization) embryos, most of which eventually will be discarded." Some support the idea of stem cell research but are more willing to ratify the testing of adult stem cells (ASCs), which are found in infants' umbilical cord blood "as well as throughout the bodies of all humans beyond the blastocyst stage" (one of the very first stages in embryonic development).

    Some ASC-based treatments have been established, but the cells are very difficult to work with, therefore not nearly as effective in scientific research as cells derived from human embryos. The issue regarding stem cell research is relevant in today's world because millions in the nation suffer from debilitating diseases, and the promising discovery of the potential of ESCs made in 1998 proves very hopeful for those people who must suffer daily.
