Abstract

The purpose of this project is to gain an understanding about the controversial topic of stem cells as an example of the impact of technology on society. The first chapter describes the types and classifications of stem cells, and chapter-2 focuses on their benefits to society. Chapter-3 goes beyond the technology to discuss ethical concerns surrounding the use of stem cells, while chapter 4 describes their legal issues. The authors provide their own conclusions based on the project research.
