Stem Cell Research Debate

It's been five years since President Bush gave approval for limited embryonic stem cell research. And still the debate rages on. Those in support of the research say the potential medical benefits could mean great things for people suffering from all different ailments like spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer's and cancer. Those in opposition of embryonic stem cell research say you shouldn't destroy a life to save one. Stem cell research using stem cells from animals is being conducted on mice by researchers at ECU's Brody School of Medicine. Researchers say while their findings are promising, much more research using human embryonic stem cells needs to be conducted.
