According to the National Stem Cell Foundation, the future of medicine and healthcare lies in stem cell research. Ethics play a large part in the controversy surrounding stem cell research, as many believe stem cell research will lead to the knowledge of how to clone human embryos. This expansive resource offers a clear, comprehensive, and balanced discussion of the issues surrounding stem cell research. Abramovitz expertly explains the often complex science that underlies regenerative medicine. While this branch of science has promised to yield cures for deadly diseases, debates about the ethics and morality of cloning techniques and the use of stem cells from embryos, as well as questions about whom should have the power to make scientific and ethical decisions in the face of rapidly-progressing technology remain robust.
