    • Embryonic Stem Cells
      • Can turn into any type of cell
      • They don't loose the ability to differentiate
      • They can develop into different types off cells depending on what instructions there given
      • There found in early human embryos
      • Have the potential to turn into any type off cell
      • Adults have stem cells, but only usually found in bone marrow
    • Cure Diseases
      • Medicine already uses adult stem cells
      • They can be used to replace faulty cells
    • Arguments Against
      • People feel that human embryos shouldn't be used for experiments since each one is a potential human life
      • Curing patients who already exist and who are suffering is more important than the rights of embryos
      • Campaigners feel that scientists should concentrate more on finding and developing other sources of stem cells
