Title: Stem Cell Research more money needs to be put into stem cell research

Stem Cell Research more money needs to be put
into stem cell research
  • Stephanie DAngelo
  • Section 608

Publicly
I really think this is a great cause (as he
shakes)
He is acting!
  • Embryonic stem cell research has become a topic
    of heated debut.
  • Recently, the commercial that Michael J. Fox
    appeared in has stirred up the most controversy.

3
Publicly..
  • Michael J. Fox is putting pressure on Bush to
    shift his idea and pass the bill for stem cell
    research.
  • This would allow 400,000 frozen embryos to be
    used for research, that would otherwise be
    destroyed.
  • Also, a Democratic Representative said she was
    disappointed at Bush's veto threat against a
    bill that holds promise for cures to diseases
    that affect millions of Americans."

Why Stem Cells Are So Important
  • Stem cells are so special because they renew
    themselves through division.
  • Under special conditions they can become a
    different form of a cell. They can become a
    beating cell, for the heart, or on an insulin
    producing cell for the pancreas.
  • There are two different types of cells embryonic
    and adult cells.

5
Truth vs.. False
  • Despite the misconception, embryonic cells are
    not eggs from a womens body.
  • They are eggs from in-vetro fertilization
    -donated for the purpose of research.

A More Personal Level
  • If the bill would be passed it could help cure so
    many people who are affected with these diseases.
  • Such a hard thing to see someone go through.

    including
  • Diabetes
