  1. AP Epilogue Questions


    1. Name one question that the stem cell debate poses. (AP 103)
    ans: Should embryonic stem cell research be permitted, should it be permitted by government and are stem cells taken from embryosleft over from fertility treatments or cloned for research?

    2. What is an argument against stem cell research?(p. 113)
    Ans: Stem cell research leads to destruction of the embryos and if research is accepted, it could lead to more dehumanizing practices
