Abstract

Stem cell research is revolutionizing the way we look at medicine. The potential for stem cells is bound only by our ability to understand their functions. Stem cells could be used for the treatment of many diseases and disabilities, which do not currently have treatments. Unfortunately, research within the United States has been stifled due to controversy over the derivation of embryonic stem cell lines and embryonic germ lines. If stem cell research is to fulfill its potential our legislative policies need to change.
