Book review - The Ethics of Embryonic Stem Cell Research by Katrien Devolder
Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research promises to enhance the way that we understand, prevent, and treat disease, potentially alleviating human suffering on a global scale. However it also involves the destruction of the nascent human life form from which stem cells are derived. Herein lies what Devolder depicts as ‘The Problem’: either one supports hESC research and accepts resulting embryo destruction, or one opposes it and accepts that the potential benefits of hESC research will be foregone.
