Facts on File
Stem Cell Research and Cloning delves into the issues surrounding one of the most controversial scientific practices of our day. While many people believe that scientific research involving stem cells will advance medical knowledge, others argue that the use of embryonic stem cells objectifies or even destroys potential human life. This book explores the legal and political ramifications of the debate, including federal funding for stem cell research, privately funded research, and the government's role in limiting scientific inquiry.
