Abstract

In recent years, therapeutic stem cell treatments and applications have become increasingly relevant to the medical community. Along with these developments, misconceptions, based on ethical and legal concerns, have arisen. This document offers an in-depth literature and research review into the development of stem cell treatments, along with an analysis of concerns from religious and political organizations. Our conclusion supports the continuation of all types of stem cell research and an increase in federal financial aid for future stem cell projects.
