For those of you who don't know very much about stem cell research it has been a controvercial issue (particularly in the United States) for some time. It is controvercial for two reasons 1. The research uses human embryos which many poeple concider to be human beings even at that early stage (for this reason this issue often goes hand in hand with many abortion issues) and secondly because it is through this reaserch that many of the advances in clonning has become reality.
The thing is that this reasearch will be able to cure many people of TERRIBLE diseases like Cancers, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, MS and many other things. It will heal millions of people of what was previously thought to be uncurabl diseases.
In the United States stem cell reasearch had been banned by the United States government until former President Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Watching her husband's depletion Nacy Reagan went to President George W. Bush telling him that stem cell research could save her husband's life! So the United States changed their policy and now back funding of stem cell reaserach.
How do you think Canada should deal with this issue? Many people have been opposed to it for fears of clonning, killing embryos that are already human beings or being the research is just so new. Concidering the possibilities this reasearch possess should Canada provide funding for stem cell proects, stay neutral or ban the use of stem cell research???

This is again, another Religious scam. They should fund, or be left behind. South Korea, doesnt regulate, and they are making incredible advances in the field. I think this should also be the case for Canada.
